My Integrated Therapeutic Approach

My sessions are facilitated using an integrative therapeutic framework that uses therapeutic models and coaching modalities. Together, in these sessions, we will work to learn the root of your concerns while simultaneously using hands-on activities to help you heal. In unison, we will identify and describe current problematic behaviors so that we can work to modify them using reasoned decisions and action steps. My approach gives you the space and practice to think critically and creatively, while I guide you through forming your pathway to healing.

1 / Dialectical  Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of talk therapy (psychotherapy). It’s based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but it’s specially adapted for people who experience emotions very intensely. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy that helps people understand how thoughts affect emotions and behaviors.

2 / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a structured, goal-oriented type of talk therapy. It can help manage mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety, and emotional concerns, such as coping with grief or stress.

3 / Emotionally Focused Therapy

In this approach to treatment, the therapist and the person in therapy collaborate in an active process. Both are viewed as equal contributors. The person in treatment, not the therapist, is seen as the person most capable of interpreting their emotional experience. EFT is founded in the idea that emotions should be used to guide healthy, meaningful lives

4 / Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a counseling method that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation they need to change their behavior. It is a practical, empathetic, and short-term process that takes into consideration how difficult it is to make life changes.

5 / Intervention Therapy

A therapeutic intervention is an effort to help someone in need who declines treatment or is otherwise unable to help themselves. In some cases, an intervention takes the form of a meeting between the person engaged in self-destructive behavior and concerned friends or family members.

6 / Solution Focused Therapy

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a short-term goal-focused evidence-based therapeutic approach, which incorporates positive psychology principles and practices, and which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems. In the most basic sense, SFBT is a hope friendly, positive emotion eliciting, future-oriented vehicle for formulating, motivating, achieving, and sustaining desired behavioral change.

7 / Strength-Based Approach

Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy and counseling that focuses on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, rather than on your weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. The tenet is that this focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on your best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience, and change your worldview to one that is more positive. Practitioners believe the main reason to discuss a patient’s problems is to discover the inner strengths clients can tap into in order to build solutions.
