"There is only one time that is important—NOW! It is the most important time because it is the only time that we have any power" Leo Tolstoy
Therapist in Beverly, MA
I use Motivational Interviewing frequently in my practice. It is a directive, client-centered counseling style for encouraging behavior change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with most of my clients because it is beneficial for client's to know how their thoughts impact their mood. In our work together actively problem solve through changing patterns of thinking or behavior.
Mind-Body Therapy (Integrative Therapy), is used frequently in my practice. I use this approach to heal and ease life's problems by increasing personal resources and one's resilience.
Much of my practice uses Mindfulness-based Therapy to cope with variety of issues, including; depression, anxiety, stress, anger, grief, and goal attainment. I teach meditative practices, including not placing judgments upon their thoughts and feelings.
Depression is a common response to difficult life events, including loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship, and low self esteem. I work collaboratively work individuals in building their strengths, compassion, and resilience.
Anxiety can be all consuming, preventing you from enjoying life. In therapy with individuals I teach ways to cope and manage anxiety.
Life transitions can be very disruptive and can be challenging to adjust. I enjoy working with client's who are willing to view life transitions as opportunities to make positive changes in their life.
