I have also been trained in other therapies such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT and DBT and the primary therapy taught in graduate school at NYU was and still is Psychodynamic therapy. I checked off eclectic therapy because it means I choose the method for the client rather than trying to have the client fit the method.
I began to study family sysytems back in the 90's trying to understand my own dysfunctional family. Since then I have run groups for families and have conducted family therapy that included so many members it could be called group therapy. It is one of the more difficult modalities to undertake but I find it very rewarding.
I come from a long line of alcoholics and after establishing myself as one among the many I chose recovery. This led me to the profession I now practice. I became certified as an alcohol and substance abuse counselor and continued my education to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in order to have a better understanding of all mental illness as there are so many individuals suffering from two or more disorders.
