My style of psychotherapy is called talk therapy, a process that is designed to help you learn more constructive ways of dealing with life’s problems or issues. It is also a healing and supportive process for dealing with a difficult period in your life or under stress. My techniques are problem solving, solution-focused, and are goal-oriented. At the onset of treatment, together we decide what specific changes you want to make. These are goals that are broken down into smaller, reachable objectives and put into a treatment plan. You have complete control over the treatment plan and its objectives; I work on helping you achieve these objectives. Through simply talking and discussing your problems, I help you find the solutions necessary to navigate difficult areas in life. I also provide psychoeducation so that you may learn about your disorder.
Psychotherapy is usually short-term and time-limited and focuses on those specific goals and objectives that you want to accomplish.
