  • Therapeutic Approaches

    Attachment Theory

    Attachment Theory looks at how the behaviors of primary caregivers impact and may influence the way an individual experiences close relationships. I use Attachment Theory to help clients understand patterns in relationships to guide them toward developing healthier connections in interpersonal relationships.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a short-term, problem-focused form of behavioral treatment that helps people see the difference between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior.

    CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response.

    I work specifically with clients experiencing symptoms associated with:

    Panic attacks
    Anger management issues

    Most people with clearly defined behavioral and emotional concerns tend to reap the benefits of CBT. If any of the above issues resonate with you, I encourage you to try cognitive behavioral therapy.

    With CBT, you’ll be able to adjust the thoughts that directly influence your emotions and behavior. This adjustment process is referred to as cognitive reconstructing, which happens through different CBT techniques.

    Some CBT techniques are:

    Challenging beliefs
    Social, physical, and thinking exercises

    Cognitive-behavioral therapy is much more than sitting and talking about whatever comes to mind during a session. CBT sessions are structured to ensure that the therapist and the person in treatment are focused on the different goals of each session, which in turn ensures that each and every session is productive.

    If you or someone you know would benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy, please contact me today. I would be happy to speak with you about how I may be able to help.

    Solution Focused Therapy

    Solution Focused Therapy is a goal-oriented therapy that focuses on an individual’s present and future circumstances. I use solution-focused therapy to assist clients in strengthening and developing coping skills to move in the direction of the future they desire.
