Some of the kinds of psychotherapy that I use
Psychodynamic: This is an insight approach. You will be searching for deeper, underlying causes and patterns of thinking and behavior which are interfering with your emotions, well-being, and relationships.
Cognitive Behavioral: Cognitive behavioral is an approach which focuses on uncovering problematic or untrue thougts, or beliefs. These may be driving emotions, interactions, and behaviors. This therapy uses techniques to uncover, challenge, and correct self-harming processes.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing): EMDR is a therapy based on the belief that unprocessed memories cause many of the symptoms of both acute and "ordinary" trauma. EMDR uses techniques to help people adaptively integrate and process memories to restore effective functioning and emotion.
Mindfulness: Mindfulness techniques are aimed at bringing you into the present moment. Because mindfulness builds specific brain functions, it is useful both as a method for producing calm, and as a body-mind integrative approach useful in addictions and trauma as well as everyday life.
Emotionally focused therapy: EFT is research based and seeks to help couples create secure connection and security. This is achieved through learning about their own and their partner's deeper emotions and needs; how they generate cycles of interaction that interfere with feelings of safety and needs being met; and how to get this turned around. EFT helps address questions such as "Do you really love me?" "Am I important to you?" "Are you there for me when I really need you?" Creating a secure emotional base leads to greater happiness in itself and also leads to better problem solving in general.
