Through my education at UCLA, research outcomes forms the clinical backbone of my practice, which is why I have an eclectic approach to helping. This simply means I don't strictly adhere to one way of working. Each person’s struggle is different and so I utilize a range of approaches, including psychoanalytic, cognitive & dialectic behavioral, existential, feminist, and relational therapies, as well as mindfulness and EMDR. The reason for this is not fanciful; it's practical.
For instance, we know that cognitive behavioral therapy can show effectiveness in treating depression, anxiety, anger and trauma with standardized protocols; dialectic behavioral therapy is indicated for maintaining emotional regulation, and treating self-harm and suicidal ideation; mindfulness shows efficacy for stress reduction and anxiety as well as substance abuse; and EMDR shows evidence that it works for PTSD, trauma related disorders, depression, and anxiety and shows some evidence of efficacy with addiction treatment. That's the science: some forms of therapy show more efficacy than others for particular symptoms.
There are other factors at play which contribute just as much, if not more, to your healing.
