Supportive Psychotherapy

The style of therapy I provide is considered Supportive Psychotherapy. This therapy includes Psychodynamic as well as Cognitive Behavioral elements (the 2 aren’t mutually exclusive).  Supportive Psychotherapy includes a combination of emotional support with some (light) interpretation of one’s difficulties. It does not rely to heavily on analysis, although there is some analysis of the meaning of one’s struggles and shedding light on maladaptive patterns and how they relate to early traumas. It all happens in a warm “holding” environment. Cognitive Behavioral work aids in assisting one form healthier coping mechanisms and is great for alleviating one’s anxiety before it get’s out of control. Feel free to email me for more information about Supportive Psychotherapy or to arrange for a consultation.
