My Approach

Therapy for your mind, emotions, and physical self

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">To create true empowerment and lasting transformation, therapy has to do more than address just one part of who you are. You as an individual are a combination of your mental cognition, your emotional landscape, and your physical </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">embodiment</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">. In therapy, it is always my goal to address </span><b><i>ALL</i></b><span style="font-weight: 400;"> these parts of who you are, and to bring them into a cohesive existence with each other.</span></p>

Integrative Resilience Therapy™

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I call </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">my approach</span> <b><i>Integrative Resilience Therapy™, </i></b><span style="font-weight: 400;">and it is a combination of cognitive, emotive and behavioral interventions </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">customized to treat your specific problem(s) and reach your treatment goal(s) effectively</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">. Some </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">techniques</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> are based in the thinking brain, cognitive therapy and neuroscience; some in behavioral therapy. Others are based on the mind - body connection, which is how our thoughts and emotions can impact our physical being and experience. </span></p>

Integrative Resilience Therapy™ is an approach to therapy that seeks to address you as the whole, complex person that you are.

I’m here for your short term symptom management AND long-term therapeutic success.

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When did our society get the idea that you need to go into your dentist at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings . . . but that our infinitely complex and ever changing psychological well being should be ignored, and expected to function indefinitely without any </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">routine </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">support?</span></p><p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I think that this approach </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">(or really “non-approach”) </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">has to stop, which is why I have a four phase treatment philosophy.</span></p>

Phase One

Assessment, Diagnosis and Clinical Treatment

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">When you first come to see me, we will focus on getting a clear understanding of exactly what kind of challenges you’re facing, the urgent and especially painful problems that you are struggling with, and work together to create strategies and insights that are going to help you get to a happier, more stable place, </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">through reducing and managing your symptoms using my Integrative Resilience Therapy approach.   </span></p>

Phase Two

Maintenance and Prevention

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Once we start to see positive change and movement in your life, our first priority will be making sure that those positive </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">changes </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">last, </span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;">and that the healing that has </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">occurred </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">is able to continue uninterrupted. </span></p>

Phase Three

Personal Growth and Development / Relationship Growth and Development

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Maslow's hierarchy of needs tell us that, before an individual can become the most fulfilled version of themselves, their basic needs must be met. In the same way, now that you have reached a healthier place in your life or relationship</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">(</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">s</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">)</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">, we can now begin the work of really reflecting about your truest goals, deepest needs, and highest aspirations. This phase is all about you gaining the internal space that you need to be able to really articulate what you want in life, and then take concrete steps toward those personal growth goals. </span></p>

Phase Four

Periodic Check-Ups

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Even after you feel like your life is on track and you're headed in the right direction, I like to have periodic check ups with my clients, to give them ongoing support and help them make mid-course corrections as problems emerge, rather than waiting until a small problem has grown into a large crisis. </span></p>

You can find your way to new beginnings, stronger relationships, and a fulfilling life . . . and I’m here to help you along the way.
