Counseling Approach


Some of the tools in my toolbox

I draw upon a variety of therapeutic techniques to develop a counseling approach that’s right for you. Here are some of my favorite methodologies.


Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

In this methodology, challenging experiences are reframed as opportunities to grow into a new version of the self. AEDP seeks to turn difficult circumstances into avenues for healing and transformation. In practice, the therapist works to undo aloneness, creating a safe environment for the reintegration of the full spectrum of emotions. This approach is commonly used to heal trauma and suffering through the active development of flexibility in thinking and processing (often called neuroplasticity), which allows change and healing to occur. In fact, research has shown that AEDP promotes expanded brain function and capacity.


Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

This humanistic approach forms its basis in attachment theory. Typically used with couples and families, it’s designed to help individuals identify their attachment needs and subsequent emotional reactions so they can better manage their emotions. The goal is to create a shift in interactions, resulting in deeper connections and more secure bonds with romantic partners, family members, and other loved ones.


Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

This evidence-based modality of treatment combines Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Acceptance-based interventions. It’s designed to help people manage overwhelming emotions, reduce self-destructive thoughts and behaviors, and improve relationship skills. DBT provides skills training that help clients learn how to apply Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness in their daily lives. The goal of this treatment is to build a life worth living.
