My Approach To Online Therapy
In my practice, I utilize eclectic psychotherapy, which means tailoring therapy to each client’s unique needs. I draw techniques from four therapeutic approaches:
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT is an evidence-based approach that considers the dynamic between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It involves finding effective ways to change dysfunctional thinking and behavioral patterns by replacing them with positive coping skills to help improve your quality of life.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a structured therapy where the client is encouraged to momentarily concentrate on the traumatic memory while simultaneously undergoing bilateral stimulation (usually eye movements). This method is associated with a decrease in the vividness and intensity of the traumatic memories. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment is a well-researched, effective psychotherapy approach that has been shown to recover from PTSD symptoms and trauma. In addition, current research demonstrates that EMDR therapy effectively treats other conditions like anxiety, depression, Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), chronic pain, addictions, and other distressing life events.
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is another evidence-based approach. The basis of this approach is the belief that childhood experiences shape your personality and your attachment style. This approach improves mental health by increasing insight and understanding of early and unresolved issues that influence the person that you are today. Psychodynamic works to resolve your underlying conflicts and unhealthy defense mechanisms.
Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)
IPT is an evidence-based approach that provides strategies to resolve four specific problems: 1) interpersonal deficits (such as social isolation or involvement in unfulfilling relationships), 2) grief, 3) life transitions such as retirement, divorce, or moving to another city, and 4) interpersonal disputes. IPT is a focused approach that helps to improve the quality of your social functioning.
