I have a wealth of experience in providing individual, family, and marital therapy. My experience has taught me that approaches to talk therapy have to be tailored to each individual. I usually combine elements of interpersonal and cognitive behavioral therapy as both are needed to make changes that are lasting. While imparting strategies is fairly easy, getting them to work is more challenging. I focus on the reasons very logical strategies do not work before implementing them. This raises the probability of success. When I work with children and adolescents, I always include parents in the process. When parents are stuck in an impasse, I will help them to move forward by offering parent training in how to speak with and manage their children.
