I am so glad that you found my website and decided to learn about my background and counseling style. I believe that you have made the right decision in seeking professional help and I will help you understand what therapy is all about, as well as assist you in finding solutions to the issues that affect you now. My professional background is strongly influenced by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and I use it frequently. I do not think that CBT is a one-size-fits-all psychotherapy method, therefore I will work with you from an individual perspective, to meet your particular needs, and will use the method that is most appropriate to what you are currently facing. I do put an emphasis on developing a future-oriented personality that actively responds to intrinsic motivations and that is reinforced with numerous resources, skills, and abilities. This is not exactly a thrilling adventure or jungle trip, but it definitely is a journey that will give you access to the person of your dreams.
Now let's imagine for a second that you are in my office and I am telling you what to expect from therapy. I will tell you that my priority is to make you feel comfortable during your treatment and help you achieve stability quickly. We will explore your needs and strengths and discover what is troubling you. I will listen to what you have to say carefully and respectfully, and encourage you to communicate any questions you may have.
If you come in for individual counseling, I will ask you to complete an intake session and fill out all the initial paperwork that is needed to start therapy. From there, we will design a treatment plan that is specific to your current situation and will start working on identifying the main goals you want to accomplish during the course of therapy.
If you come in for couples counseling, we will also establish "ground rules" to make therapy fair for both you and your partner, and the goals will primarily be based on what both of you together wish to accomplish during therapy. These goals will become part of your plan and will be reviewed as your treatment continues.
