Approach to Therapy

My therapy tends to be directive, behavioral and cognitive. Directive, means that I do give advice, make suggestions or give assignments to be done between sessions. Behavioral means that I set up target behaviors and goals with specific reinforcements and consequences. Cognitive means that I deal with internal thoughts that may effect our feelings and or behaviors.I prefer to see client's biweekly to allow for some things to be worked on between sessions. If someone is in an acute state I may see them weekly. My sessions run for 45 minutes.
