Individual therapy is an opportunity to meet with a therapist one on one to explore a variety of issues in a safe space with confidentiality. Most of the time our support systems have a bias with what we are going through so we can't effectively work out what we want for ourselves. In individual therapy, it is an opportunity to really drill down to your concern and work through it effectively and without judgment.
I have been trained in NARM (Neuro Affective Relational Model), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), and Harm Reduction. These modalities are all useful depending on where we are at in our lives. During our first appointment, we can discuss the benefits of each modality and determine what the best fit is for you.
The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) is my preferred intervention and method of psychotherapy specifically aimed at treating attachment, relational and developmental trauma, otherwise referred to as “Complex Trauma” (Complex-PTSD or C-PTSD). This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Gestalt Therapy, and diverse Somatic Psychotherapy approaches. The model was created by Dr. Laurence Heller. You can learn more about the model here.
