My Approach

I continue to  update my knowledge of the best, most effective, and efficient treatments by regularly attending workshops and reviewing findings from recent research.  As a result, the treatment interventions that I use regularly change to incorporate this state-of-the-art information.

Over the years, I've studied various theoretical orientations:

  • Psychoanalytic approaches

  • Humanistic, Feminist, and culturally informed treatments

  • Family Systems Theory including Play Therapy

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Contemporary Variants of CBT

    • Mindfulness

    • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

    • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

    • Motivational Interviewing

    • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing treatment (EMDR)

    • Exposure and Response Prevention
