I utilize a cognitive behavioral approach (which means our thoughts can influence and ultimately affect our behaviors) with large doses of humor, empathy, safety, and compassion. I believe that once we feel safe sharing our thoughts and feelings we can change our behavioral patterns through hard work, introspection and insight. Along with cognitive behavioral theories, I also utilize a solution focus therapy. In essence, by focusing on what has worked for you in your past, what hasn’t worked as well as how you’ve previously made changes I believe those things will help you make the current changes needed to get control back in your life.
