I view my therapy through an attachment lens. Attachment lays the groundwork for how we will interpret and process the world around us. Utilizing EFT I examine my clients attachment style, identify mismanaged emotions, and develop healthier strategies of coping with negative emotional experiences.
As with EFT, interpersonal therapy utilizies an attachment base. Once we understand your attachment style we can then examine the unique ways in which you engage in relationships to meet your needs. We will identify unhealthy interpersonal patterns and work to develop more adaptive techniques to engage in relationships.
Nothing saps the joy from life more than relationship conflict. I love having the opportunity to help couples hear each other, to see the relationship from each other's perspective and recognize the need to work together.
In working with individuals suffering from anxiety I have found that it is an inability to properly identify and manage the body's emotional experience that leads to the distress. I utilize emotion focused therapy to identify the negative emotional experience and together with the client develop healthier coping strategies to deal with that emotion.
I have received training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), both of which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression. By addressing both maladaptive thought patterns and unhealthy interpersonal patterns, we can work to address the unmet attachment needs driving the depression.
