I have what is called a collaborative,"Ecclectic" Therapeutic approach. Ecclectic means that I pull techniques, philosophies, strategies, coping skills, and even ways of "being" with clients from many different types of therapies. I feel that this approach allows me to be flexible with my clients in many different ways. The more I learn about a client, the more precise I can be with which types of therapies I utilize. For example, if a client is more "heady", or cognitive, they may appreciate a more cognitive approach, such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), though this is not always the case. If a client prefers CBT because they have difficulty accessing their emotions, a therapy such as EMDR may be more helpful.
Every case is different and has many levels of complexity. I view you, the client, as invaluable to the therapy process, which is why my approach is also called collaborative. I consider both you as the client and myself as experts in our respective fields, and both of our input and commitment are required for therapy to be successful.
