You may be wondering what these treatments are, and how they will help. Questioning what is right for you is an important part of your treatment journey. I am available for a free phone consultation to assist you with figuring out what treatment approaches would best fit and effectively treat your issues.
Below is a brief description of some of the treatment techniques that I use, and the different issues they may effectively treat.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapy treatment that focuses on understanding how we think and how these thoughts lead to different emotions and behaviors. In general, CBT breaks down the pattern of thinking-feeling-behaving. Once the pattern is understood, a person is better able to change unwanted behaviors. CBT is a collaborative approach with the client and therapist working together to understand changes and behavior.
This therapy is effective for behavior issues, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, body image issues, OCD, panic attacks, and phobias.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is similar in treatment strategy to CBT, except DBT focuses on four specific skill building areas: emotion regulation, interpersonal communication, distress tolerance, and mindfulness.
DBT is effective for behavior issues, mood swings, suicidality, self-injurious behavior, anxiety, depression, coping skills, and communication issues.
