• Depending on your needs and specific problem area, we will find a therapeutic method that works best for you. I typically use a blend of therapy modalities. Below are some of my specialties:

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

  • Drop the struggle with painful thoughts/feelings and make room for them

  • Decrease avoidance

  • Commit to taking steps towards your values while simultaneously accepting life's difficult circumstances

  • Reduce efforts at trying to control thoughts, feelings, and other people

  • Emphasizes mindfulness

Motivational Interviewing

  • Designed to help you arrive at your own solutions

  • Clarifies priorities

  • Strengthens motivation toward a specific goal by exploring your own reasons for change

  • Non-judgmental, collaborative, and compassionate process

Emotionally Focused Therapy

  • People are made healthier by emotional contact and need to feel safe in their connections to others

  • Explores patterns of distress in intimate relationships that is often deeply rooted in fears of abandonment

  • Initiate new cycles of interaction

  • Discuss feelings in an environment of compassion

  • Use new communication styles to talk about old problems and develop new solutions
