Psychotherapy allows individuals an opportunity to process their thoughts and feelings with a trained clinician. Through psychotherapy individuals learn to better manage situations and challenges by learning problem solving and healthy coping skills.There are numerous treatment styles and modalities used for the therapeutic process to be effective. In practice, I primarily use evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Evidenced-based treatments have proven to be one of the most effective treatment modalities in the treatment of various concerns. More importantly, the treatment method recommended and used is the most appropriate
treatment to meet the identified needs of the client.
As a clinical therapist, I strive to be transparent working with clients to create realistic treatment plans with identified measurable goals to ensure their needs are met. Life and therapy are both a journey. Both in life and therapy individuals set goals and work to achieve those goals. In order to accomplish goals individuals must be willing to engage and invest. For therapy to be effective the individual must be willing to engage with their therapist by being open and honest in their communication about issues and concerns. They must be willing to invest their time and energy in themselves. The ideology of Magee Madry Counseling Services Beyond the Journey is, each individual has a personal journey and while on their personal journey of growth and transformation they have the ability to positively effect the lives of others.
