My approach is known as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This form of treatment examines how our thoughts influence our feelings and behavior and how faulty thinking can lead to distress. In addition to CBT, I draw on other techniques and frames of reference such as Interpersonal Process, mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
As I use these methods, I remain active and engaging with my patients. I don't just sit quietly waiting for things to happen or for you to figure things out. I ask questions, and clarify -- all in an effort to help define and work through problems.
In therapy, you should feel that your point of view, concerns, and feelings are being heard, valued, and respected. At the same time, part of treatment may be to challenge these ideas in an effort to bring perspective, greater clarity and relief from psychological pain.
