I use a flexible model of psychotherapy which is designed to meet the needs of different patients with unique qualities and personality characteristics. I use a supportive approach and believe that the relationship between patient and therapist is the key to success. I often use reflective listening techniques to accurately understand the clients emotional state. I also use cogntive behavioral techneques to help clients develop effectgve coping skills in order to develop a sense of mastery of theiir problems.

Now, what I do as a Therapist is to myself take the role of 'dysthymic' a antagonist. In other words, I lay low. I remain objective and fairly clinical, and "outside the box" seemingly a little depressed myself so as to be on even footing with the patient or what have you. Then I track them with my associates for a long while until I am able to recognize the outcome.
