More Info About My Practice
In 2014 , I completed training at Northeastern University Bouv'e Graduate School of Nursing and since then I obtained board certification in Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing. Subsequently, I am attempting to become more specialized in the treatment of children, adolescents and adults based on a biopsychosocial approach, that is, always attempting to consider integrating different perspectives when discussing treatment planning alternatives.
i also believe in psychoeducation to address questions and uncertainty regarding treatment planning.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Over the last 26 years, as a clinical psychologist and nurse, I have specialized in Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine. Over time I became convinced that to more effectively treat different presenting symptoms and diagnoses requires a biopsychosocial perspective. That is, integrating our evolving understanding of underlying biological, social, familial, psychological factors when considering how to treat presenting behaviors and symptoms.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy, once called "The Talking Cure", however, the process has become more elaborate and our understanding of the benefits of psychotherapy extensively studied. For example, as described by Nancy Andreasen, MD, Ph.D., The Brave New Brain (2001) in her book addressing the conquering of mental illness, she reported,
Psychotherapy acts on the both the mind and the brain. As we understand more and more about how the brain works, how it changes in response to experience, we are steadily recognizing that the effectiveness of psychotherapy is a consequence of the ability to effect "mind functions" such as emotion, and memory by affecting brain functions such as connections and communications between nerve cells.
The essence of psychotherapy is to help people make changes in their feelings, thoughts and behaviors through the multiplicity of different psychotherapeutic techniques that are believed to make changes in a "plastic brain" which learns new ways to respond and adapt that are then translated into changes in how the person feels, thinks and behaves.
Psychotherapy is now considered, to be as "biological" as the use of drugs or psychotropic medications.
