My Approach to Helping

My approach to counseling and therapy has changed quite a bit through the years and with experience. One of the main things I try to focus on is having a good rapport and relationship with my clients. This has been shown to be a necessary but not sufficient criteria for effective therapy. I also like to ask clients for feedback as far as things that are helpful or not so helpful in our work together. Finally based on client feedback I will draw upon different counseling modalities that suite the needs of each individual client. These counseling modalities include Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered, Existential, Solution Focused, etc.

More Info About My Practice

I have a background in philosophy and when appropriate, I like to draw upon various philosophies and philosophers that may benefit a particular client. An example of this would be philosophers such as Nietzsche, Sartre, Schopenhauer, Camus, Dostoevsky, etc.
