Types of Therapy:
I typically use a combination of therapeutic methods. What works for one person's personality and problems might not be the best for another. Together, we will outline the behaviors (symptoms) that are causing you problems.
I have briefly outlined some of the of work I use in my practice:
PSYCHOTHERAPY, often referred to as "Talk Therapy" is
the general term for addressing problems through talk.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health,
psychotherapy is a way to help people by helping them
understand their problems. It teaches people strategies
and gives them tools to deal with stress and unhealthy
thoughts and behaviors.
I often combine principles of GESTALT THERAPY in
treatment. By definition, this form of therapy helps raise a
person's awareness of how they function in their
environment. The goal is to help one learn what they are
doing, how they are doing it, and how they can change,
while at the same time learning to accept and value them self.
Principles of COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT) has
proven helpful to some people in learning to cope when they
may change, but the situation doesn't. The idea behind this
form of therapy is that out thoughts cause our feelings and
behaviors, not external things like people, situations, and
For some, it is dealing with the past, putting past hurts to rest,
or learning to overcome the damage done to them. It may involve learning to forgive others, or oneself. Or, it might be a
way to establish healthy boundaries, gain confidence, and learn
new ways of facing life on life's terms.
