Philosophy of Treatment
Psychotherapy is provided in a collaborative, strength-based and solution-focused therapeutic model, utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a primary mode of treatment. Clients often have the answers to their own problems, but sometimes require guidance rediscovering strengths and solutions that were previously effective. Mindfulness techniques are also incorporated into the therapeutic process to help the client manage symptoms and become more present in their lives. The therapy relationship is a partnership in which there is an opportunity to practice healthier and more adaptive ways of being in a relationship, provided in a safe environment. Sometimes we get stuck in certain patterns of relating to life and relationships. To get unstuck we need to go outside of our familiar patterns to grow.

Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage are not always comfortable but they're never weakness.
