Some of the methods and skills I use in a more structured approach to psychotherapy include:

  • cognitive behavioral therapy: how your thoughts and behaviors influence your emotions, and how to influence your emotions by changing your thoughts or behaviors
  • relaxation techniques:
    • progressive relaxation
    • guided imagery
    • breathing exercises
  • psychoeducation about emotional and thinking processes
  • emotional coping skills
  • stress management
  • emotion regulation strategies
  • mindfulness meditation
