Todd Giardina, PhD, Psychologist in Coral Gables
As a psychologist I have several goals in therapy. I begin by developing a relationship with my patients, with the understanding that I am an expert in my field, but that the patient is the expert on themselves. I believe in educating my patients and empowering them to take charge of their lives and take responsibility for improving their situation. I teach coping skills, largely using cognitive behavioral techniques and by having patients practice by doing "homework". In addition, I explore a patient's history and past relationships, but only after first managing their distress in the moment.
I can speak "both languages" of male and female, and aid in understanding relationship dynamics. This helps in my work with women and couples. I have found particular success working with women's self-esteem, anxiety and relationship issues. You gain an objective male perspective.
I work in a large group with several other clinicians. The benefit to patients is that if I am unable to accommodate an appointment time or if a patient has issues that I don't treat, one of my colleagues will likely be able to assist.
Take the first step to help. Call Todd Giardina now - (305) 445-0477
