Hitchcock Psychotherapy
Welcome to my psychotherapy practice. I AM accepting new clients.
These are some of the things you can expect from me:
In the initial appointment I do a complete evaluation, compiling information about all aspects of one's life: physical, emotional, and spiritual. This is important because I will work with the complete individual and all aspects of their lives. We are shaped by where we came from, where we are now, and our vision for the future. I do believe in the ability of people to heal and recover from distressing incidents in their lives and to feel differently about themselves and others.
I am an interactive therapist which many of my clients like. I try hard to be compassionate, respectful and non-judgemental to my clients. I understand that many come to therapy with difficulties trusting other people so we may spend time developing trust in one another in the beginning sessions.
I have been in psychotherapy practice for over 20 years and bring a wide array of treatment modalities to my practice. I have specialized training in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS-level 3), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, addictions counselling, family of origin issues and ACOA issues, PTSD and trauma.
Call me for appointment 401-490-3139 or text 401-225-2276. Thank you!0
