Renee Gilbert, PhD, Psychologist in Bellevue
I can best describe myself as a Competency-based, Cognitive-Behavioral, Family Systems therapist. Practically speaking, that means I have great respect for the challenges we all face in our lives and consider most so called "problem-behaviors" as logical adaptations to difficult situations that simply have outlived their usefulness. Therapy sessions strive to identify out dated problem solving strategies and replace them with newer more effective solutions. While I utilize a number of treatment techniques, I rely most heavily on Cognitive-Behavioral, Skills Training and Family Systems approaches.
I view therapy as an active process. Clients are encouraged to do homework assignments between sessions ranging from assigned readings and worksheets to at-home practice sessions and "real life" assignments consistent with your goals. Video-taped feedback is available as appropriate, along with skills-training workshops.
Additional services include: specialized treatment programs for couples, programs for people struggling with shyness and social anxiety, and personalized social-skills training programs for business and/or personal use.
