Individual therapy is a proven way to address personal issues and to make positive changes in your life. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, relationship issues and life adjustments. The methods that I use are short-term and results oriented. I will personally take an active role in each session to help you achieve your goals. My approach is informed by the three methods listed below:
Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy
STDP is a scientifically validated method of treatment designed to treat a wide range of emotional disorders including anxiety, depression, relationship issues and somatization. The therapy process is intensive and accelerates the process of change so that most clients begin to see results in a matter of weeks, rather than months or years.
The mission is to eliminate symptoms, allow you to fully engage emotionally in relationships and to live your life to your maximum potential. So if you want to get to the root of problems that have plagued you for years, or if previous therapy has been disappointing, STDP could be the answer.Healing Emotions Saves Health Care Dollars - Psychiatry Monitor
Solution-Focused Brief TherapySFBT is an empirically validated method of treatment designed to focus on one specific issue rather than a pattern of dynamics or an array of interpersonal problems. SFBT looks narrowly on specific areas of concern and targets solutions in a very time-limited and results oriented manner. The focus is on the present and future without exploring the past. With SFBT, we will use the strengths and resources that you already have as a foundation for improvement. If you are looking to create change in a specific part of your life, SFBT may be appropriate for you.
CBT is a very poplar, research validated method of treatment designed to treat a full array of anxiety, mood and relationship issues. CBT examines the impact of potentially irrational thoughts or beliefs on emotions and behavior. It also teaches problem solving, communication and social skills. It uses assigned reading, homework assignements and ratings scales to examine progress on a daily basis. If you are struggling with frequent worrying, overthinking, overanalyzing and a restless mind, then CBT may be appropriate for you.
