Psychotherapy

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help you with a wide variety of mental health and emotional challenges. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so you can function better, increase your feeling of well-being, and begin your recovery journey.

How Psychotherapy Helps?

Psychotherapy helps with issues such as coping with daily life; the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one; and specific mental health issues, like depression, trauma, PTSD, obsessive thoughts, or anxiety.

Psychotherapy Session

Psychotherapy sessions are typically held once a week for 50 minutes. Clients share personal feelings and thought in an open and supportive environment.

Psychotherapy can be short-term (a few sessions), dealing with immediate issues, or long-term (months), dealing with long-standing and more complex issues.

Approach

Approach

I apply a variety of psychotherapy approaches and adapt the approach to fit the needs of my clients. Gestalt Psychotherapy and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy are two approaches I've found highly effective, and I apply them while working with clients.

Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt therapy is an existential or experiential form of psychotherapy that emphasizes personal responsibility and the experience in the present moment. The Gestalt approach explores the present moment for the client in the therapist-client relationship, their environment, and the social contexts in the client's life. Exploring the self-regulating adjustments clients make to adapt and respond to their life situation is a core element of the Gestalt approach.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psycho-social intervention that aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. CBT is a proven approach to helping clients recover from trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
