My Approach to Helping
I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help those I work with address their challenges. That being said, I don't treat diagnoses; I treat people, each of whom brings a unique set of circumstances to the table. The use of CBT allows for a flexible approach to exploring your particular set of strengths and challenges, which may just be a normal reaction to the stresses of life. CBT practitioners listen to you, attempt to understand your history and ideas, and then act as a teacher and coach to help you achieve your goals. The best analogy for my approach is that of a consultant. A consultant recognizes that you are the expert on you and your circumstances, and a good consultant uses their expertise to work WITH you to find practical solutions to your challenges. If you're looking for someone to partner with, I might be the person you're looking for.
