Individual therapy services are tailored to your specific interests and needs. I practice both short- and long-term therapy and sessions can be structured and skills-based or more conversational in style. During the initial sessions, we will develop an individualized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. I specialize in the following models of therapy:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a mode of therapy that focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As a CBT therapist, I help clients modify distorted thinking and maladaptive behaviors that contribute to negative mood states. Sessions focus on building specific cognitive and behavioral coping skills and homework assigned between sessions will help you practice these skills.
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT (pronounced “act”) is an evidence-based model of psychotherapy that builds upon the traditional CBT model. ACT integrates a combination of acceptance and mindfulness strategies with traditional behavioral change strategies in order to increase psychological flexibility. ACT also has a central focus on values. By clarifying your values and taking conscious action in line with those values, you create a sense of meaning based off of what is important to you. The goal of ACT is to work towards “acceptance” of what is outside of your control and to make a commitment to change things that are within your control, in order to improve and enrich your life.
