Anxiety, depression and relationship issues are Dr. Bisignano’s specialties. In her approach to working with people, she takes into consideration four key areas. First, the clinical, where she considers how we feel, think and behave. Secondly, Dr. Bisignano considers the relational: how we connect, communicate and love. Third, she looks at performance: how we use our gifts, talents and strengths to pursue our goals, vocation and calling. Fourth, the spiritual: how we contemplate and find meaning and purpose in our lives.
Dr. Bisignano’s role as a psychologist is to help you explore and process the issues or problems you present, grow in awareness and understanding, and learn acceptance. Together you will examine how relationships may support or contribute to problems or challenges in your life and what changes may need to be made. You will look at core beliefs and behaviors that may be influencing or impacting your life.
Each Client is Unique
Dr. Bisignano approaches each client uniquely, designing strategies aimed at their particular mental health concerns. She provides skills and tools to better equip her clients to deal with the challenges they may be experiencing. Dr. Bisignano’s practice is influenced by evidence based theories and research. She draws from multiple modalities including: emotion focused, attachment, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, positive and strength-based psychology. She also utilizes research from the field of neuroscience into her practice.
In addition to therapy services, Dr. Bisignano also offers coaching. Therapy differs from coaching.
