MORE ABOUT MY APPROACH

Solution Focused Therapy

I am a Solution Focused Brief therapist, an approach which places the focus on a person’s future circumstances and goals rather than past experiences. I work with my clients to develop a new vision of the future and explore what difference that will make in their lives as we begin developing strategies leading towards this better future.


I may also utilize other modalities, such as Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Collaborative Couples therapy and Gottman Marital therapy.
 
In order to maintain our professional competency and to provide the highest standard of care, psychologists must participate in a set minimal number of hours per year of professional development.  I do my utmost to keep up with all the current literature that relates to my practice as well as professional development opportunities.  This also includes familiarity with the field of psychopharmacology in order to collaborate with my clients' physicians if medication is involved.
