Multi-modal methodology ranges from cognitive-behavioral (CBT) & dialectical-behavioral (DBT) approaches to awareness and relaxation training. More expressive therapy can include the use of sandtray & art materials. Encouraging journaling, bibliotherapy, research, & homework projects allows patients a chance to grow at their own pace and in ways that engage their individual interests. Upon request I do have a limited practice of more traditional psychodynamic analysis. In all cases, it is essential for an individual to develop coping skills to manage specific problems.
