Dr. Evangelatos primarily takes a psychoanalytic approach to psychotherapy and integrates other methods, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), to help clients grow toward health and wholeness. Dr. Evangelatos considers the relationship between past and present and examines problematic relationship patterns to create new life possibilities such as increased self-esteem, better use of talents and abilities, and an improved capacity for developing and maintaining satisfying relationships. She enjoys working with clients wanting to incorporate spirituality as part of psychotherapy, which provides an opportunity to treat the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. Additionally, she has experience working with those who have suffered from harmful religious practices.
