Therapy Style

I use an eclectic approach to therapy fitting the theoretical perspective to meet the client’s needs. In other words, I use a broad range of approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic, Family Systems, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).

These approaches can help people who are suffering from stress, life transitions, relationship problems, depression, anxiety (including phobias and performance anxiety), single incident trauma, or other challenging life events to quickly get back on the road to leading a fully functional life.

For longer-term help, I work from a psychodynamic perspective to achieve an in-depth understanding of the self by examining childhood experiences to gain insight into present-day emotional growth. The person that we become is very much shaped by childhood experiences and the environment in which we were raised. All these factors play a part in who we are today and how we form relationships with others. Understanding more about ourselves helps us develop better and more fulfilling relationships.
