Dr. Atti practices from an integrative treatment approach, which focuses on skills and techniques that will increase one’s ability to live a life full of emotional and physical well-being.
In utilizing an integrative treatment approach to therapy, Dr Atti is able to maximize results with her clients. She draws on several schools of psychology which enables her to attend to the unique personality and characteristics of each person she works with. Her areas of ongoing proficiency include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), and Humanistic Client-Centered.
Dr. Atti believes that every client is worthy of empathy, genuineness, and a judgement-free therapeutic environment. She also believes that therapy should involve the development of increased self-awareness and coping skills in order to help deal with everyday life. Although therapy and progress takes time, Dr. Atti emphasizes the importance of building on life skills slowly and progressively. In her experience, effective therapy involves more than just an intellectual understanding of one’s problems. A better understanding of the thoughts that keep a person “stuck”, along with the allowance of an emotional experience, is what will help move an individual to work through issues and conflicts, and behave in more adaptive ways. Because the patterns that keep a person unable to change in life are often rooted in early emotional experiences, it can be extremely freeing and therapeutic to explore these in.
