My name is Mavis M. Alaimalo or as my patients call me, ‘Dr. Mavis’. Welcome to my web page!
I offer psychotherapy services to include individuals, couples, consultation to healing professionals and therapists as well as a one-time or ongoing supervision for students as part of their internship and/or training.
My guess is, since you are here, you, or someone that you care about and love, may be seeking help and considering therapy. If so, you have taken the first courageous step toward improving your life circumstances or that of your loved ones.
My therapy style is sincere; reality-based; challenging and spontaneous. I pull a lot from my vast experience in the mental health field, as well as the many years of my clinical training, internship and fellowship. During our first session, we will work collaboratively to explore your current challenges that led you to my office, and sift through the barriers and obstacles that may be hindering you from living the life you want.
My primary approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and utilizing a broad-spectrum perspective to help patients. This allows me to treat the whole person by bearing in mind the biological, psychological and social factors which makes each person a unique individual. These factors help me understand each person, their clinical presentation and assist in the evaluation and individual treatment planning process.
It is a well-documented tid-bit fact that life can be quite the challenge and at times, downright unbearable and overwhelming! It has a way of throwing us numerous curve balls, fast balls and at times, all at once like a tidal wave. These challenges can leave us feeling emotionally debilitating, lost, confused, discouraged and often drive us to want to give up. If you are still reading this, you are already half way to living the life you want. Consider giving me a call.
I look forward to hearing from you!
