What do you look for in a therapist? What's important? Surprisingly, age, gender, years of training and theoretical orientation are not the primary factors correlated with the effectiveness of a therapist. So how do you choose someone? Is it by their picture? The best website? The one that's taking new clients? Finding the right person can be incredibly difficult. Research suggests that the most important factors in positive therapeutic outcomes are the therapeutic alliance, working together to set collaborative goals, and the therapist's ability to be empathetic, accepting and genuine.

Life can be full of difficult experiences, challenges, and transitions that can result in stress and impact functioning. Whether you are looking for change, need extra support, or would like to work on a specific issue, therapy can be a helpful tool in reaching your goal! In practice I use CBT and mindfulness-based strategies to help facilitate positive change. I view therapy as a collaborative process where I work together with clients to identify unhelpful thought and behavioral patterns and help individuals learn new, more supportive approaches.

My clinical practice provides high-fidelity cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to adolescents and adults seeking treatment for mood, anxiety, addiction and sleep disorders to name a few. CBT is a structured psychological therapy that views problems as arising from interactions between cognitions, emotions, behaviors and physiological processes. As a therapeutic approach, CBT is brief (5-15 sessions), here-and-now focused, and measureable in terms of one's response to treatment. I employ a range of client outcome instruments in my practice, which allow for precise decision-making about how to modify treatment to meet the needs of each individual.

Gambling Therapists
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or Falmouth gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Falmouth typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step program for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behavior in Falmouth.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a Falmouth gambling therapist or gambling therapists in Falmouth or those experienced with gambling behaviors in Falmouth.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Falmouth are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Falmouth

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Falmouth you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Falmouth and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Falmouth or family therapy in Falmouth.
