My treatment approach is eclectic and utilizes a combination of various methods: 1) Buddhist psychology (my niche) involving helping the client to improve self-compassion, acceptance, self-awareness, and to reduce their own suffering; 2) Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) involving calming the mind to reduce anxiety and increasing self-awareness to body responses to perceived threat and one's perceptions of anxiety-producing circumstances; 3) Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which identifies unhealthy belief systems regarding self and others and systematically addresses them; 4) Strength-based approaches where beliefs used in one area can be applied to another; and 5) If applicable, Systematic Desensitization to address traumatic memories that promote various degrees of distress.
During the first session, my primary objectives are 1) listening to you intently and non-judgmentally, during our interaction, while taking note of key information and themes, 2) empathizing with you regarding the circumstances that prompted you to seek therapy, and 3) using that initial body of information to develop basic and relevant approaches to help you build healthy empowerment, self-awareness, well-being, and more. Homework is assigned toward the end of each session. Following sessions build upon the last as more information typically surfaces in light of events that may occur between sessions. Also, we evaluate the effectiveness of skills developed during session and practiced between appointments. If necessary, we adjust those needing it to improve their effectiveness for you.
