Cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as CBT, helps patients become aware of destructive or negative thinking to help them respond to challenging situations in a more effective way. CBT can be very helpful in treating anxiety or depression and can help anyone better manage stressful life situations.
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight therapy, centers on unconscious processes. The client examines unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships.
Interpersonal psychotherapy, is a short term treatment, usually 3 – 4 months, that helps a patient regain control of mood and functioning — as a person’s depression may not be caused by any interpersonal event or relationship —but usually affects relationships and creates problems.
As a therapist I draw from a wide variety of treatment methods. My clinical orientation and training is integrative, as it combines Solution Focused, Person Centered, and Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) perspectives. I am well schooled in Modern Psychoanalysis, Self Psychology, Focusing and Client Centered Therapy and have received training in individual, couples and group psychotherapy.
I provide treatment options that can help with difficult relationships involving family, friends, even co-workers. Such as:
