Treatment Approach Summary:
My approach is grounded in cognitive theory. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based treatment proven to be effective in treating many conditions and helping with a variety of life's difficulties. This treatment approach helps you gain deeper insight into how your thinking impacts your emotional health and behavior and how this might interfere with overall functioning and well-being. My interventions are interactive and collaborative which focuses on correcting negative thinking patterns and developing more helpful positive thinking which in turn can help boost your mood and change behavior. I will help you learn how to use strategies and skills so you can begin your own process of healing, expand your thinking, nourish your strengths, and take charge of your life.
