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.
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.
Somatic Psychotherapy is a holistic approach that focuses on your mind-body connection by combining both psychotherapy and physical therapy. It helps you develop an awareness of the connection between your mind, body, spirit, and emotions. It incorporates specific interventions to release certain emotions from your body. This approach monitors your stress and traumatic events and their effect on your nervous system. Some examples of these interventions are controlled breathing exercises, mindfulness, and peripheral physical techniques.
