The type of treatment that Daniel uses will depend on the particular situation and needs of each client. The approach may involve very specific goals and techniques to deal with a particular issue or crisis. Other times, longer term psychodynamic or psychoanalytic psychotherapy may be appropriate. Daniel will use elements of the following treatment approaches to help meet your needs and to best address the presenting issues.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that can effectively help people better manage symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and anger. CBT focuses on thought patterns, and behaviors that are causing problems in a person’s life. CBT can be extremely effective in helping you understand the difference between your thoughts and feelings, and where changes may be needed. CBT helps understand, challenge, and change negative, or distorted thought patterns that are causing distress. Daniel has experience using CBT techniques to help clients break unhelpful habits in their thoughts and actions, and make changes to better manage symptoms and situations.
Coaching is a more structured treatment approach that specifically focuses on solutions and positive change. Coaching is seen as a very practical treatment approach you can initially take to start impacting a situation. This often can involve issues at work, or in your interpersonal relationships. Daniel will help you assess the situation of interest and examine options to handle the matter differently. This process is accomplished through the here-and-now coaching functions, by a trial-and-learn period, and ultimately through your commitment, effort, and execution.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy involves helping raise awareness to underlying issues from one’s past, and how they may be creating stress or conflict in current situations. It can be extremely helpful to use therapy to gain an understanding of our patterns of behaviors, emotions, and defenses that are can be limiting a person’s growth. Sometimes our early life experiences can create unhelpful and dysfunctional patterns of thinking and acting that need to be addressed. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is an effective way to help create longer term changes in individuals perceive and interact with the world.
