Modalities

I employ a diverse range of therapeutic modalities to tackle various issues, including personality disorders, ADHD, and difficulties related to relationships and parenting. Here are some of the key approaches I use:

- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This structured, hands-on method assists individuals in altering patterns of thought and behavior that contribute to their challenges, thereby changing their emotional responses.

- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): An evidence-based approach that blends elements of CBT with mindfulness practices. It focuses on teaching clients to live in the moment, develop effective stress-coping mechanisms, regulate emotions, and enhance interpersonal relationships.

- Attachment-Based Therapy: This approach aims to strengthen the fundamental bonds between individuals, improving emotional connections within relationships. It is particularly useful in marital counseling and advanced parenting workshops.

- Psychodynamic Therapy: A depth-oriented therapy that delves into the unconscious processes affecting behavior and emotions. This modality strives to uncover how past experiences, especially from early childhood, shape current behaviors and relationships. It is ideal for individuals keen on exploring the deep-rooted origins of their emotional issues.

- Ecotherapy: This therapy involves engaging in outdoor activities in nature, based on the belief that a deep connection with the natural environment can significantly enhance mental health outcomes.

Trauma Informed Treatment

Trauma-informed care recognizes how trauma can shape individual behavior and overall health—physically, emotionally, and mentally. It involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to all types of trauma, while focusing on building skills over fostering dependency, and promoting safety, choice, and empowerment. This approach addresses:
 

  • - Interpersonal Trauma: Involving trauma within personal relationships, such as emotional, physical, or sexual abuse.

  • - Chronic Trauma: Stemming from prolonged exposure to stressful situations like abuse or long-term illness, with progressively worsening effects.

  • - Complex Trauma: Originating from multiple, often interpersonal traumatic events, typically in environments with no escape, such as during childhood abuse.

  • - Developmental Trauma: Occurring during a child’s formative years in persistently harmful environments, affecting their emotional, cognitive, and physical growth.
