Supportive Psychotherapy

Supportive psychotherapy aims to relieve symptoms of psychological distress (e.g., stress/overwhelm, low mood, difficulty adjusting to new situations) and increase self-efficacy through interventions such as reflective listening, empathic validation, and development of adaptive coping skills (e.g., relaxation, deep breathing).  Supportive psychotherapy often integrates techniques  from multiple therapeutic modalities and is best suited for individuals experiencing  difficulties with stress management, burnout, grief and loss, and life transitions.
