Therapy Approach

Therapy Approach  | Dr. Cynthia Thorp, Specializing in Integrative Therepy - Minden, NVMy therapy approach is best described as an Integrative. Although there are hundreds of psychotherapeutic approaches, it is my experience that many of these different perspectives offer techniques that are complementary and helpful. I select primarily from these psychotherapy orientations: Cognitive-Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Narrative and Humanistic-Existential. The Integrative approach empowers one not only to solve personal problems but also to achieve psychological growth and a sense of well-being.

What can I expect in therapy?

Treatment is initiated through two 50-minute preliminary assessment appointments, where information concerning current stressors, psychological history and presenting symptoms is gathered to formulate a starting point for treatment. If necessary, I may ask for prior therapist or physician information (with your permission). Both therapist and client work together in defining specific therapeutic goals. Therapy can be short-term (6-10 sessions) or longer, depending on the presenting problem. Therapy is focused on changing self-defeating thinking and behavior patterns while enhancing your personal strengths. During therapy, you will be provided the necessary guidance, education and support to achieve successful treatment.
