Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS)
A deeply compassionate therapy approach, IFS focuses on healing painful emotions through restoring mental balance and harmony.
Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)
ERP is one of the more preferred and effective treatments in treating anxiety disorders including specific phobias and Obsessive-Compulsive disorder (OCD). ERP focuses on incorporating gradual and systematic exposure to a feared stimulus while decreasing compulsive and avoidant behaviors.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT focuses on identifying and modifying dysfunctional cognitions that impact feelings and behavior.
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
SFBT focuses on identifying goals and creating achievable steps towards fulfilling goals set forth. SFBT may also explore previous efforts made towards achieving goals in the past.
Strength-Based therapy focuses on resilience and resourcefulness and utilizes these strengths to empower the client and the client's situation.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
MBCT is a non-judgemental therapy that focuses on mind and body by implementing meditation and breathing techniques while focusing on present thoughts and feelings.
Curated with you, just for you.
I use an eclectic approach utilizing a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities to best suit each individual client's needs. Some of my preferred methodologies of treatment are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Somatic-based Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). Often times I take an integrative approach, which involves combining two or more treatment methods to create a more personalized approach. Research supports that the relationship between the therapist and client contributes greatly to the client's outcome no matter what technique is utilized (Norcoss, J. & Lambert, M., 2018).
Clients have described me as an interactive therapist; I pride myself on being an active participant during session time. I center session time on teaching, clarifying, and exploring. Perhaps you are feeling stuck and are not quite sure where to start - I believe a successful therapy experience begins with the creation of achievable goals developed collaboratively by the client and therapist. No matter what brought you to explore this process, I welcome you to take one step closer towards growth and self-exploration.
Let's do this together.
