My Approach to Helping
Danika is an interactive therapist - she doesn't just sit back and listen! She uses compassion and directness as she helps patients uncover the specific barriers keeping them stuck in a cycle of unhealthy patterns. Danika effectively connects with her patients to get to the underlying issue of what is causing their presenting symptoms. She has helped her patients build emotional intelligence and rational perspective, develop a healthy lifestyle balance, set and follow through with their goals, and learn many other valuable tools.
Dr. Zivot takes into account patients' physical and mental health and has used solution focused behavior change interventions with hundreds of patients who needed guidance on the topics of smoking cessation, nutrition, physical activity, stress management, sleep, and more.
