Psychotherapy is effective and the most common form of treatment to manage psychological, emotional, and mental well-being. Psychotherapy can take the form of being solution focused where attention is given to a specific issue that needs to be remediated or longer term analysis where a patient can come in up to five days per week to explore and reflect on his or her life.
There are several types of psychotherapy: psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, and brief. Dr. Jinnie Cristerna practices all three forms of psychotherapy and is extensively trained in several modalities and theories including: cognitive behavior therapy, emotional freedom technique, and solution focused treatment. There are also several theoretic modalities that are used in traditional talk therapy to help patients deepen their understanding in more dynamic ways such as: self-psychology, object-relations, relational, drive, interpersonal, humanistic, and Jungian. Dr. Cristerna is extensively trained in the ones listed.
