My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a psycho-social intervention that aims to reduce symptoms of various mental health conditions, primarily depression and anxiety disorders. I have used CBT throughout my career. I use CBT in therapy to encourage my clients to explore unhealthy thoughts, and decisions, and to show them how their thinking affects their mood and behavior. By teaching my clients that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment.

Couples Counseling

I have experience providing couple counseling in private and community settings. I utilized my educational background and 29 years of marriage to help couples work through their communication and conflict issues, and create intimacy with the relationship. My goal as your therapist is to assist the couple to express their feelings, discuss issues with their partner, and resolve conflicts.

Eclectic

I have used Eclectic therapy throughout my career. I believe that their is not one therapy that is effective for all clients. I use a combination of therapaticu approaches that allow me to customize therapy for each client based on their strengths, weaknesses, interests, and motivations, using elements of various modalities to create a more effective treatment.
