Therapy Modalities

I want you to get back to the activities you enjoy. The therapeutic modalities I offer are designed to help you overcome the condition you are suffering that is causing pain and dysfunction.

 

I practice with a variety of treatment methods—both classic and current. Together, we'll decide what therapeutic modalities work best for you. So, you can achieve your goals efficiently and in as little time as possible.

Humanistic Therapy

Humanists believe that all parts of our experience—our family, society, culture, and ethnicity—make us who we are. These experiences lead us to create both positive and negative stories about ourselves.

When we work together, you share your side of the story. As your therapist, I listen and help identify patterns that can improve or hinder your progress. You can cultivate more meaningful connections with partners, family, and friends with this greater sense of awareness.

Narrative Therapy

Narrative Therapy is a way of looking at you as a separate entity from your problems. Through this method, you can experience a sense of being divorced from what is troubling you. And that distance can help you see the positive aspects of a problem or circumstance.

 

You can experience a new perspective and feel empowered to make changes so you can deconstruct your dominant story, and ’rewrite’ it. Then you can develop it into a richer, more accurate, coherent, and life-affirming one.

Internal Family Systems

Internal Family System Therapy looks at how we cannot be understood in isolation from each other. We need to be considered as part of a family. Why? Because families are always interconnected and interdependent, whether you get on with each other or not!

 

The family system means you each have a role to play, and you are expected to do that in a certain way. Your role is shaped by the relationship agreements you have with each other. These can either be predictable or out of kilter. It’s all about causes and causes. So, your family system can be balanced or dysfunctional. You can explore how the emotional system functions in your own family system. By looking at your patterns of behavior, we can discover ways to find new and better options to solve problems.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy weaves together cognitive-behavioral techniques and mindfulness strategies to help relieve stress and anxiety. Using these methods, you can achieve a better way to manage your thoughts and emotions.

 

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy can help you interrupt your natural thought process that can trigger depression. By seeing yourself separate from how you feel, and your mood, it can lead to liberation from these feelings and the cycle that causes them.
