My Approach to Helping
My approach to therapy is rooted in psychodynamic/cognitive-behavioral conceptualizations. I appreciate understanding a client\'s history in order to understand perceptions of current concerns and how they may have developed from experiences while growing and developing over the life span. To that end, I approach current concerns by utilizing cognitive, behavioral, and process interventions. I also incorporate some psychoeducation and expect some degree of openness. I use cognitive behavioral therapy to change thoughts, feelings, and perceptions which can reduce distress.
