Clinical Interventions

I use an integrative approach to therapy, drawing from treatment modalities that are backed by science and emphasizing humanistic principles of unconditional positive regard, empathy, authenticity, and acceptance. I adapt a combination of these approaches to capitalize on your unique strengths, incorporate your genuine values, and meet your individual needs. Check out the descriptions on this page to learn more about what these interventions entail. 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that fosters psychological flexibility and emotional resilience. ACT encourages individuals to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than trying to suppress or control them, allowing for a more accepting and mindful relationship with their internal experiences. By developing a deeper understanding of their values and what truly matters to them, clients learn to make conscious choices aligned with their goals and aspirations. Through experiential exercises and mindfulness techniques, ACT empowers individuals to live authentically, fully engaged in the present moment, and take committed action towards building a rich, meaningful life. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely acclaimed and effective therapeutic approach that focuses on the powerful connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. A CBT approach involves working collaboratively with clients to identify and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs that may contribute to emotional distress. Through evidence-based techniques and practical exercises, individuals learn valuable coping skills to manage anxiety, depression, stress, and other mental health challenges. CBT empowers clients to reframe unhelpful thinking, build healthier perspectives, and develop constructive behavioral responses. With CBT, clients gain valuable tools to navigate life's challenges, promoting lasting positive changes and improved overall well-being.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a person-centered and collaborative therapeutic approach that focuses on exploring and resolving ambivalence about change. MI is designed to compassionately guide individuals towards positive behavioral shifts by tapping into their intrinsic motivations and values. In MI sessions, clients are encouraged to openly discuss their personal goals, strengths, and challenges in a non-judgmental and supportive environment. By helping clients explore their own motivations for change, we empower them to take ownership of their decisions and actions. MI is particularly effective in addressing addiction, unhealthy habits, and resistant behaviors. An MI approach to therapy can help you find the inspiration and self-belief needed to achieve lasting positive changes and foster a greater sense of empowerment and well-being in your life.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a highly effective and evidence-based therapeutic approach designed to help individuals build skills for emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and mindfulness. DBT helps clients learn to manage overwhelming emotions, improve communication, and develop healthier relationships. With DBT, clients gain invaluable tools to navigate life's challenges, promoting personal growth, resilience, and a balanced emotional well-being.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a specialized and evidence-based therapeutic approach designed to help individuals overcome the impact of traumatic events. CPT sessions focus on assisting clients in understanding and challenging negative thoughts and beliefs related to their trauma. Through a structured and systematic process, clients learn to reevaluate their trauma-related beliefs and develop healthier perspectives. CPT equips individuals with coping skills to effectively manage distressing emotions and regain a sense of control over their lives. This therapy is particularly beneficial for individuals struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related symptoms.

Prolonged Exposure (PE)

Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy is a proven and evidence-based treatment designed to effectively address symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Using PE, the therapist will gently guide clients through processing and confronting traumatic memories in a safe and supportive environment. By gradually exposing individuals to memories, situations, and emotions associated with the trauma, PE aims to reduce avoidance and fear responses. Through this process, clients can gain a sense of mastery over their traumatic experiences and ultimately lessen the emotional impact of the memories. PE is a transformative approach that empowers individuals to reclaim their lives and find renewed strength and resilience.

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP)

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) is a powerful and evidence-based approach designed to support individuals in maintaining their recovery from addictive behaviors. MBRP incorporates mindfulness practices to help clients develop a greater awareness of their cravings, triggers, and emotional states. Through mindfulness techniques, clients learn to respond to these challenges with wisdom and compassion rather than reacting impulsively. MBRP equips individuals with valuable skills to cope with stress, urges, and difficult emotions, fostering resilience in the face of potential relapse triggers. By promoting self-compassion and non-judgmental awareness, MBRP empowers clients to make healthier choices and sustain their progress on their path to recovery.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a research-backed program designed to help individuals manage stress, anxiety, and other challenges in their lives. MBSR sessions offer practical and effective techniques rooted in mindfulness practices. Through guided meditation, body awareness, and mindful movement, clients cultivate a present-moment focus and non-judgmental awareness of their thoughts and emotions. MBSR empowers individuals to respond to life's stressors with greater resilience and calmness. By integrating mindfulness into daily life, clients experience improved overall well-being, reduced reactivity, and increased self-awareness.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is a highly effective and time-efficient approach that centers on identifying and building upon clients' strengths and resources. Using SFBT, therapists collaboratively explore clients' goals and preferred outcomes, focusing on practical solutions rather than dwelling on problems. Through a series of targeted questions and positive discussions, clients gain clarity on their desired changes and learn to develop achievable action plans. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is designed to help clients move forward, fostering a sense of empowerment and hope. In a limited number of sessions, individuals experience significant improvements in their lives, making it an ideal choice for those seeking prompt and impactful results.
