Although Pauline utilizes many different modes of therapy, she has been extensively trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is a type of therapy that focuses on the way a person’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are connected and affect one another. Treatment is goal orientated to resolve present day problems. It is based on scientific evidence and is shown effective in treating many disorders.
“I treat all ages using methods that have clear scientific support of their effectiveness and efficiency. These methods do not involve extensive exploration of client’s childhood or unconscious mind. Instead these methods are active, directive and educative. I aim at solving problems the client faces now and teach tools to utilize the rest of their life. I believe in treating the client, as well as, the whole family unit and improving the quality of life for all.” Pauline
