I enjoy incorporating a variety of therapeutic principles and philosophies in order to successfully address a person's personal issues and concerns. Here are some of the modalities I've been trained in:
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors. CBT is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders including phobias, addictions, depression, and anxiety.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
SFBT often referred to as simply 'solution focused therapy,' SFBT, or SF therapy, is a goal-directed collaborative approach to psychotherapeutic change that is conducted through direct observation of client's responses to a series of precisely constructed questions.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT is a therapy designed to help people change patterns of behavior that are not effective, such as self-harm, suicidal thinking and substance abuse.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
EFT is a short-term (8-20 sessions) structured psychotherapy approach to working with individuals, couples and families. It is firmly established in attachment theory but also includes elements of experiential, person-centered, constructivist, and systems theory.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
MBCT is designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.
Psychoeducation refers to the education offered to individuals with a mental health condition and their families to help empower them and deal with their condition in an optimal way.
