Tania ZubkusPsychotherapist, LSW, CADC
Our first engagement with therapy typically comes during times of crisis, or when confronted by one of life’s many challenges. The good, very hopeful news is that a willingness to seek supports during these more painful moments also creates great potential to gain skillsets fortifying the mind, spirit, and body for the long-term. We are not our problems, we encounter them. With this in mind, I strive to create a therapeutic context in which a sense of safety, lack of judgement, and respect are a given but also where humor, creativity, and spontaneity can come into play. I tend to pull from a clinical “toolbox” of treatment approaches, allowing for flexibility based on particular needs. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) are some of the foundations to support focus on thinking patterns, behavioral responses, mindfulness, and personal values.
