One-on-onepsychotherapyis the most common request in my practice. The word “individual” is key in understanding the way I approach therapy. The relationship between my clients and me is of utmost importance in psychotherapy. Clients needs to feel that there is a real person sitting in the room with them, who not only has the education and skills to assist them, but who is also willing to participate in the recovery process with them. I take the time necessary to understand my clients’ histories, their personal life circumstances, and their clinical issues in order to collaboratively develop a treatment plan that feels appropriate for the client. It is due to this approach my clients have very different treatment experiences from each other and varying lengths of treatment. It may not be possible to determine in the beginning how long any one person’s treatment will take but I do engage in frequent conversations with my clients to evaluate their progress in treatment and utilize creative strategies to assist clients in meeting their goals in a timely manner. I offer an integrative approach to psychotherapy, utilizing a number of therapeutic orientations and techniques which allows for a more individualized experience for the clients. These include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT therapy), interpersonal psychotherapy, psychodynamic therapy, somatic experiencing, dialectical behavior therapy and schema therapy.
