Providing One-on-One Individual Therapy
Dr. DiNardo has been asked many times about whether or not she is able to work with individuals since she is a “Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist” (LMFT). The answer is a resounding yes! Marriage and Family Therapy may sound like it is all about treating more than one person, however, being an LMFT is more about a mindset, a theoretical orientation if you will.
Being an LMFT simply means that a therapist is a believer in Systems Theory – the idea that individuals are impacted and influenced both from internal and external forces and that these forces are in a constant and dynamic interaction with each other. Systems theory supports treating an individual while learning and understanding the individual in the context of the significant relationships in their lives.
