Therapeutic Interventions
 
Dr. Dietrich provides evidence-based treatments for various problems, including anxiety, posttraumatic stress, depression, dissociation, relationship problems, and others. She treats adults (aged 18 and older), couples and families.
 
In psychological treatment, there is not a "one size fits all" approach to selecting treatment approaches and interventions. To be most effective, treatment must be geared to the individual problems that people are dealing with and to the preferences of the individual seeking treatment.
 
People often come in and request a specific type of treatment that they have heard about; however, for most psychological difficulties, there exist a variety of approaches that can be used.
 
Dr. Dietrich is trained in a variety of treatment approaches and regularly attends conferences and workshops to keep up to date on treatment interventions.
 
Her selection of treatment interventions is determined by her client's unique needs and presenting problems, and are chosen in collaboration with her clients.
 
Examples of treatment approaches she has been trained in and uses include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing (EMDR), Client-Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Couples and Family Counseling approaches, and Sensorimotor psychotherapy.
 
Specific types of interventions include (but are not limited to) psychoeducation, gestalt techniques, journaling, guided relaxation, drawing, somatic approaches, and "homework" (such as having clients monitor certain behaviours and experiment with trying out new behaviours.
