My Approach to Helping

Hi, my name is Evangelos, but you can call me Evan! My approach to therapy is one based on genuine human interaction. A person centered orientation is the foundation of any therapeutic relationship. Not every person benefits from the same type of treatment. This is why I hold an eclectic orientation, including but not limited to: CBT, DBT, Emotional focus therapy, Mindfulness, and Relaxation. I hold a belief in goal-setting and strategy building. However, I also understand that sometimes we just need to vent! My earliest exposure to mental health training was in Hypnosis, and the interaction between our conscious and subconscious mind.

I have been in this field for 9 years. I have worked in School Based Services, as well as a Director and Therapist in a private outpatient setting. I have worked with children as young as 4, and adults well into their geriatric years. I have worked with a variety of presenting concerns. The only way to find out if we are a good fit to work together is to give me a call or text me to set up our first visit!
