“WHAT TYPES OF SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?”

Starting with the first phone call or consultation session, we’ll quickly determine what options you have and the best way to pursue them. I use a flexible approach with my work and will apply a mixture of techniques to help you achieve your goals. This might include the use of individual therapy, couples therapy, or family therapy. Some of the therapeutic approaches I use include:

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  1. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts color our emotions and influence our behaviors. Consequently, when people’s thinking becomes self-defeating, distorted, or negative, this can lead to overwhelming emotional/behavioral problems. A major focus of CBT is to help people identify unhealthy patterns of thinking/acting, evaluate healthier alternatives, and begin to implement these new ways of being.

Psychodynamic Therapy

  1. A goal of psychodynamic therapy is to help people understand how their past experiences influence their present behavior. It focuses on the psychological “roots” of our emotional concerns by examining such things as unresolved conflicts or problematic relationships.

Couples & Family Therapy

  1. Couples (married or not) and family therapy both emphasize relationships as an important factor in psychological health. Each helps people to resolve conflicts by developing tools such as increasing communication skills, negotiating differences, problem solving and even arguing in a healthier way.

Evidence-Based Drug & Alcohol Therapy

  1. The focus of drug & alcohol treatment is to help people who are struggling with addiction change their lifestyle to prevent serious problems from happening--or from happening again. Often times, problems with addiction will “co-occur” with a mental health problem like depression or anxiety. This co-occuring relationship between between addiction and mental health problems can lead people to experience a sense of helplessness and have a spiraling effect.

  2. When treating addiction or co-occurring disorders, it is important to use methods that have been proven to work through scientific research, which is also known as evidence-based treatment. What follows are some methods that have been shown to be highly effective.

  3. BulletMotivational Interviewing is a person-centered, non-confrontational method of helping people explore & resolve the uncertainties they might have about making a change in their substance use. The therapeutic relationship is seen as a partnership and people are encouraged to articulate those barriers that have prevented them from changing their drug & alcohol use

Relapse Prevention helps people to anticipate high-risk situations that they might encounter after stopping their drug & alcohol use, and, prepare to meet those challenges by developing coping strategies. In particular, therapy helps people evaluate what might “trigger” a craving or urge to use like unhealthy people, places, things, emotions, or thoughts. Once these triggers are identified, people learn to develop the skill sets to manage these concerns.

Public Speaking & Educational Workshops

  1. I’m often asked to speak for communities, associations, and organizations on a variety of  topics that include overcoming addiction, managing depression/anxiety symptoms, improving upon relationships, and better understanding issues related to our sexuality. I strongly believe that learning takes place when we’re interested about what’s being said. This is why my speaking engagements include exciting powerpoint presentations, exercises for the groups, and active audience participation.
