Therapeutic Philosophy: An Integrative Approach

My practice integrates Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy.

  • CBT is a proven method that helps clients recognize and transform harmful thought patterns. It empowers the development of healthier coping strategies.
  • Psychodynamic Therapy is an approach that dives into deep-rooted thoughts and emotions, working through past relationship conflicts to boost current behavior and mental well-being.
