At Life Matters Counseling and Therapy, LLC there is an eclectic mix of therapeutic approaches used for clients based on their presenting problem, personality, and needs.
Most used approaches:
- Psychodynamic approach- Focuses on the origin or symptom of the problem. Understanding how the past is being repeated in the present.
- Cognitive-behavioral- Focuses on identifying and changing self-destructive behaviors and though-patterns, improve how to handle feelings and anxiety, and break the cycle of self-destructive behavior.
- Interpersonal approach- Focus on understanding self-defeating patterns in business and personal relationships.
- Systemic approach- Focuses on an "identified client" but as part of a larger system that is causing or enabling behavior. Most useful when client is resistant.
Other approaches may be used based on the clients individual needs or need for self-expression. The therapy session is a safe and confidential place to express feelings, thoughts, fears, anxiety, dreams, and any other problem.
