There has been a lot of talk regarding “Evidence-Based Practice.” What this refers to in my mind is being mindful and adhering to the APA’s Division 12 list of Evidence-Based Treatment when any client comes in for therapy. This resource can be found at the following link: https://www.div12.org/psychological-treatments/.
These evidence-based treatments have been treatments studied and published by journals that have demonstrated efficacy in therapeutic settings. Rather than depend on any treatment, I am mindful of those treatments that have been shown to work. There are a few treatments including CBT, EMDR, and others from the list that I utilize in treatment. The therapeutic alliance in addition to Division 12 treatment has been found to produce effective treatment.
So, if you’re an LGBTQ individual who is seeking counseling in Los Angeles, or if you are any individual experiencing anxiety, I encourage you to reach out to me for more information. The link above is provided for your reference, however.
Until next time,
