MY APPROACH TO PSYCHOTHERAPY

UNDERSTAND.

CHALLENGE.


OVERCOME.


 

We repeat what we don't repair.

Name, Title

Dr. Bonafina will have a free phone consultation to discuss the type of help you are looking for and how psychotherapy can help you achieve your goals.
After the initial in-person face-to-face session, treatment is available in-person or virtually based on the patient's needs.

INTENSIVE SHORT-TERM
DYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY
(ISTDP)

ISTDP is not a typical treatment in which the therapist goes through the sessions slowly.  Work is done with an active participation of the therapist through the challenge and rapid identification of self-sabotaging behaviors of the patient.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY
(CBT)

CBT is a problem-oriented approach that aims to change unhelpful patterns of thoughts and beliefs and replace them  with more accurate and healthier ones.

Always remember that for each patient you see, you may be the only person in their life capable of both hearing and holding their pain. If that’s not sacred, I don’t know what is.
