Dr. Redlak-Olcese's therapeutic approach is collaborative, structured, directive, and active. It goes beyond traditional "talk-therapy." Specific techniques and concepts are taught during each session and next steps are identified for you to practice at home. "We work together on becoming experts of your patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving so you can make real changes and learn new ways of reacting and responding to life challenges. You will learn how to think and behave in ways to obtain what you want."
