I use a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) >>
Based on the belief that one's thoughts, not situations or circumstances, are a core cause of feelings and behaviors. A benefit of this framework is that one can change their thoughts and feelings-- impacting actions, even if the environment does not change.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) >>
Focuses on four modules: mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance.
Supporting the analysis and exploration of early childhood trauma and experiences in various family systems: examining conscious, unconscious, and subconscious parts of the mind.
Coordinating and customizing social services, referrals, and resources to meet comprehensive mental health needs.
Strength-Based Humanistic Therapy >>
Assessing and learning about one's uniqueness and potential for self-actualization through strengths, skills, and talents. This becomes a catalyst for treatment, planning, and self-directed growth.
