Your story, your pain, and your collection of struggles are unique to you. There is no one-size fits all approach to therapy. I utilize different treatment modalities to fit your individual needs. Here are a few examples of the type of therapy offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes affect your feelings and actions. We'll uncover unhelpful or conditioned ways that you perceive the world that may be self-defeating. One can learn to overcome difficulties by changing some of their perspectives, behaviors, and emotional responses.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT therapy) is a type of mindful psychotherapy that helps you stay focused on the present moment and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment. It aims to help you move forward through difficult emotions so you can put your energy into healing instead of dwelling on the negative.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)

IPT is an evidence-based, time-limited therapy for depression and anxiety. IPT focuses on how emotional distress can develop in the contact of problematic relationships. It aims to reduce depression and anxiety by improving relationship functioning and social support. It is particularly effective for the treatment of depression as it targets problems in the areas of grief and loss, role transitions, and interpersonal disputes. It's also used to treat anxiety and mood disorders such as bipolar disorder.

Internal Family Systems (IFT)

IFS is a type of psychotherapy that believes we are all made up of several parts or sub-personalities. We all have several parts living within us that fulfill both healthy and unhealthy roles. Life events or trauma, however, can force us out of those healthy roles into extreme roles. The goal of IFS therapy is to find your Self and bring all of these parts together. IFS can help with general life stressors, but also treats anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and mood disorders.

Mindfulness Based Therapy

Mindfulness-based therapies use meditation, relaxation, and awareness exercises to help focus on the present moment, aiming over time to experience day to day situations and stressors in nonjudgmental and non-reactionary ways. This approach is a helpful counter for anxiety, which tends to leave us ruminating on past concerns or future worries. Mindfulness practice helps you to see more clearly the patterns of the mind and how to learn to recognize and interrupt negative moods.
