Evidence-based Treatment

According to the American Psychological Association (APA), there is strong research support for the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and interpersonal therapy (IPT) in the treatment of various emotional health problems, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, stress management, and relationship concerns. These treatment approaches not only help you understand the origins of your symptoms and potential triggers, but also empower people to better manage their problems by learning useful, practical strategies and coping skills. Combined with a strong, supportive therapeutic relationship, you can learn how to embrace life’s uncertainties and transitions, while increasing your engagement in important activities and values that fulfill you, such as relationships, leisure/play, work, educational pursuits and your faith.

I also use evidence-based approaches to treat:

  • Disordered eating
  • Postpartum depression and anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Attention difficulties
  • Recovery from traumatic experiences
