THE GTS INTEGRATIVE APPROACH
John Carnesecchi, MSW, LCSW, CEAP, founder and Director of GTS, practices an integrative and didactic approach to therapy that includes many techniques from the following well- respected orientations: Cognitive/Behavioral (CBT), Gestalt, Freudian, Dialectical Behavioral (DBT), Humanistic, Imago Relationship Therapy and Coaching.
Therapy is often used for life-enhancing help in fulfilling aspirations for personal growth or self-improvement. Each year, millions of people seek therapy and receive real help for a number of problems and issues. Therapy can address a wide range of concerns such as depression, relationship concerns, parenting goals, emotional distress, career issues, substance abuse, significant loss, and clinical disorders or conditions.
Mental health professionals often develop expertise in specific areas and establish preferred modes of therapy. At GTS, we work with our clients to determine the most effective treatment plan even when it does not include their preferred orientation or just one specific technique. This can sometimes involve elements of several different types of therapy, for example, a combination of behavioral therapeutic techniques and psychodynamic therapeutic techniques, becoming what are referred to as an “eclectic or integrative approaches” to therapy.
