Individual therapy also known as psychotherapy — The American Psychological Association (APA) defines psychotherapy as "a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and nonjudgmental." Therapy helps people recognize and confront challenges and barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being, while increasing positive feelings including compassion, self-esteem, love, courage, and peace. Many people become more self-aware, and they view psychotherapy as a means of self-growth and self-development.
My method of individual therapy — As a trained integrative marriage and family therapist, I enjoy working with people from a holistic perspective. I believe it is important to consider not only the presenting problems, but also what has happened developmentally, biologically, inter-personally and cognitively. I conceptualize our experiences from a systems perspective, I conduct individual therapy by using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), play therapy, art-therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and client strength-based methods. I tailor sessions based on clients' needs and what works best for them.
