My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

ACT is used in my practice to help clients understand their current behavior patterns, develop greater self-awareness and find more effective ways to manage stress, depression and anxiety. It can also improve communication in relationships; help people to identify goals and values that will guide them through life; and ultimately facilitate a deeper sense of acceptance, peace and fulfillment.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is used in my practice to help clients to make use of their own experiences and understanding in order to challenge negative thinking patterns and behavior. I work with clients to identify the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to difficulties thus allowing them to develop insight into how these components interact. By teaching my clients more helpful ways of responding to life events they can learn to better manage difficult emotions such as anxiety or depression, improve social skills, and develop more effective problem-solving strategies. Ultimately, CBT can help my clients make meaningful and lasting changes in their lives.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

Solution Focused Brief Treatment is used in my practice to help clients create goals and develop plans to reach those goals. It is a short-term, goal-oriented approach that focuses on the here and now rather than exploring the past. The client's strengths are identified as resources for identifying solutions and progress towards their goals. I believe that clients have within themselves, the answers they need for managing change in their lives.
