my clinical style ...
Trauma-informed care takes into account the entire person. Trauma Therapy aims to assist clients by using the utmost care to help them recognize traumas and how they have changed the way individuals see themselves without re-traumatization. (Certified, 2022).
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT is a solutions-oriented modality that focuses on modifying emotions, behaviors, and thoughts that each affects one another to create and perpetuate habits, ideas, and/or cognitions.
This approach to couples therapy includes research-based interventions with the goal of disarming and removing barriers that create conflict while increasing communication, intimacy, respect, empathy, and affection.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
DBT helps clients to manage painful or overwhelming emotions and decrease conflict in relationships by focusing on strategies, including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal skills.
Internal Family Systems
IFS is an evidence-based model of therapy which believes that the mind consists of inner parts. It is a strengths-based empowering paradigm that promotes integration, compassion, and harmonization of the mind.
Differential diagnosis is important to deter misdiagnosis. It is estimated that when diagnosing mental health disorders, due to the multiplicity of signs and symptoms, error rates may be as high as ten percent!
my approach to treatment ...
My approach stems from both my own personal experience having been on the client side of therapy and my clinical training in evidence-based practices, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindful-based interventions, and Internal Family Systems.
I believe in creating a safe, supportive environment where clients can practice, develop, and explore themselves using a variety of strategies that challenge current emotions, thoughts, and experiences.
My process is multi-faceted and includes an active presence beyond just a listening ear. I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental space where clients may find guidance, feedback, and support. The goal is for clients to learn to work through challenging emotions and experiences. I provide psycho-education and suggest skills & strategies so that clients can achieve greater self-awareness, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and work toward their personal goals.
Sessions are held virtually via HIPAA-compliant video services (Zoom or Google Meets). New clients may request a free 15-minute consultation. Every client must complete registration and intake papers before their initial intake session, which lasts approximately 90 minutes.
Each additional follow-up session is 50 minutes in length; the frequency of sessions can depend on each individual, the severity of symptoms, scheduling, and your particular comfort and/or needs.
