My treatment methods

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

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.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

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.

Gender-affirming therapy

Gender Affirming Therapy is a therapeutic stance that focuses on affirming a patient's gender identity and does not try to “repair” it.
