Clients often ask me what “type” of psychotherapy I practice. The answer to that question is complicated, and is perhaps best answered by “it depends”. My own belief is that different types of problems benefit the most from different types of therapy, and that a therapist who offered the same treatment for every problem would be doing his clients a disservice.
With some clients I am apt to use a more “behavioral” or “cognitive” focus with an emphasis on problem-solving, adaptive coping, and altering maladaptive thought and behavioral patterns. With other clients I may focus more on increasing self-awareness and the degree to which they can be in touch with their emotions. With yet another type of client it may be more important to focus on past trauma in order to facilitate recovery. I will be happy to discuss the method I am using with you at any time, and explain how I selected it, and the pros and cons of that approach as opposed to other approaches.
If you have any beliefs about the way therapy ought to proceed with you, I would be happy to listen to them and take them into consideration. Whatever methods I may use, I always view psychotherapy as a dialogue in which the therapist and the client discuss the client’s deepest and most important concerns in an open and authentic manner.
