Simply put, my goal is to help individuals, groups, couples, and families improve their ways of “thinking, feeling, and doing.” To accomplish this, I employ a wide variety of approaches including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, family systems, solution-focused, spiritual, and neuroscientific approaches.

Each of these orientations offers unique and specific interventions which I’ll gladly discuss more in-depth upon request. Potential clients have certain “rights” when considering counseling and psychotherapy. Therapists are required by law to disclose these rights before counseling ever begins.

For example, one of my registration forms (See Forms link: “Your Rights as a Client”) reads: “You are entitled to receive information…about my methods of therapy (and) techniques.” Indeed, one of the most important and oft asked questions by clients is “What is your approach to counseling?”

Esteemed professor and psychologist Gerald Corey (2009) emphasizes:

…the importance of developing an integrative approach to counseling practice that pays close attention to what (people) are thinking, feeling, and doing. Combining these three dimensions is the basis for a powerful and comprehensive approach to counseling practice. If any of these dimensions is excluded, the therapeutic approach is incomplete because no single theoretical model is comprehensive enough to explain all facets of the human experience (p.1).
