Dr. Alan Winder
STEP – Using Solution-Oriented, Multi-modal Therapy to help with Depression / Anxiety / Adjustment Disorders / Addictions / Work Problems / Behavioral Issues and more….
Dr. Winder uses a proprietary method called STEP to treat a wide variety of personal problems that cause emotional pain. He is trained in a diverse array of techniques including short term, solution-focused, CBT, insight-oriented, and motivational interviewing therapies. He uses these together in a structured, progressive way, based on your individual situation and goals. This individualized approach is the basis of STEP, and Dr. Winder will customize each session based specifically on YOUR presenting issues, personality, and preferences.
Dr. Winder believes that the overall goal of psychotherapy is to have a positive and lasting impact on your life, and this needs to be developed and reviewed in a clear and organized way. This treatment planning and goal-development process is a central part of your therapy. Your goals are continually reinforced by developing a treatment plan collaboratively with you and frequently evaluating (the E in STEP) this throughout the therapy process.
No one is exactly the same, and different people respond better to different treatment approaches. Dr. Winder focuses on finding the approach that works best for you, and makes sure you are on board with every aspect of the therapy process from beginning to conclusion.
The point of therapy is to be useful and to make a difference in your life, and Dr. Winder focuses the entire therapy process on making sure this happens by tailoring treatment to your specific needs and what works best for you.
