Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Solution-focused
I primarily work from a client-centered approach and, when appropriate, will utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy perspectives and tools to assist and re-direct patients towards their goals. My aim is to provide an empathic understanding of, acceptance of, and respect for my client’s individual perceptions and experiences. I work to clarify my client’s ideas and thoughts which allows them to see themselves more clearly and come into closer touch with their real goals, dreams, feelings, and behaviors.
