My background and training is based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. The client and I work on finding the maladaptive thinking patterns/behaviors and see how it influences the lifestyle of the client. Through in-session work and out-of-session assignments, the client and I work on finding the new thinking pattern/behavior. This helps clients reach their goals by ultimately eliminating maladaptive thinking patterns/behaviors and incorporating new positive thinking patterns/behaviors.

I also use Mindfulness approach to help the client relieve anxious feelings or stress by focusing on the present moment.
