Evidence-Based Treatment Modalities

Through evidence-based treatment modalities, Dr. Kushnick tailors therapy to meet each individual's unique needs. These modalities may include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT helps individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors contributing to anxiety. It teaches practical techniques to challenge irrational beliefs and replace them with healthier, more adaptive ones.
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): MBSR combines mindfulness meditation, yoga, and body awareness techniques to help individuals manage stress, increase self-awareness, and cultivate a sense of calm.
  • Exposure Therapy: This form of therapy gradually exposes individuals to anxiety-provoking situations in a safe and controlled manner, helping them build tolerance and reduce fear responses.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): ACT emphasizes acceptance of distressing thoughts and emotions while committing to actions aligned with personal values, helping individuals build resilience and experience psychological flexibility.

Collaborative Relationship and Support

Dr. Kushnick understands the importance of building a collaborative and trusting relationship with her clients. Through empathetic listening, validation, and support, she creates a safe space where individuals can explore their anxiety, fears, and concerns without judgment.
