Years of experience have taught me that a holistic approach to treatment yields optimal results for my clients. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Therapy, Mindfulness, Stress Management, Psychodynamic Therapy and Therapy Assessments into my practice. Additionally, I empower my clients with stress management techniques and a regular mindfulness practice which help decrease levels of stress and anxiety and improve quality of life.
Learn more about each of the techniques I utilize to engage and assist my clients below.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is based on the assumption that when people change the way they think, behaviors can be modified. Changing behaviors can lead to healthier functioning, increased satisfaction with relationships, work, and other areas of one’s life. CBT is incorporated into my practice by teaching my clients how to challenge and alter dysfunctional thought patterns. CBT is an evidence based model which is beneficial in addressing issues of anxiety, panic, eating disorders, as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
This specific type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy treats a variety of issues, which include anxiety and panic disorders, specific phobias, eating disorders and OCD. With the support of the therapist, clients are gradually exposed to feared situations, using relaxation strategies, coping skills, and behavioral techniques. Through exposure therapy, clients will overcome their fears and gain control over situations which are overwhelming and distressing.
Being mindful enables people to be more present with their thoughts, feelings, emotions, body sensations, and environment. Developing a practice of mindfulness helps individuals feel better, alleviates stress and anxiety, as well as other uncomfortable emotions. I incorporate mindfulness into my practice by teaching clients how to be more present and accepting of themselves.
Stress has been shown to interfere with many facets of functioning. My clients develop and practice a variety of stress management techniques to calm their body and mind. These techniques include breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, as well different poses which reduce tension, stress and anxiety.
