Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
I really enjoy working with people who can freely speak their minds, and share about their childhoods and current lives. I have found that being practical, understanding, and honest while utilizing Solution-focused therapy, Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing give people results to their challenges. It also gives them an opportunity to look at what they have the ability to change, and what they do not. These practices help people move forward and accept themselves, for who they are, and all of the gifts they have been given in this life.
