Therapeutic Modalities

There are many therapeutic modalities used during a counseling session. I use a combination of modalities, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Gottman Method, and Sensate Focus.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment which focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behavior.

CBT is often used when challenging cognitive distortions, such as black-and-white thinking, minimizing, and catastrophizing.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment which focuses on emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal skills.

DBT can increase self-awareness of emotions.

Gottman Method

Gottman Method is an research-based approach that is used in relationship counseling to create shared meanings, values, and goals.

The Gottman Method focuses on increasing emotional intimacy, resolving and repairing conflicts, and friendship.

Sensate Focus

Sensate focus is used in individual counseling and relationship counseling. This is a technique that is often used in sex therapy.

Sensate focus exercises are typically completed outside of the counseling session.
