My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping others is grounded primarily in the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) tradition and is strongly influenced by the principles of the Transdiagnostic Model of Emotional Disorders (also known as the Unified Protocol), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and by Buddhist Psychology and the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction model. I prefer to work within a relatively short-term treatment model clearly focused on agreed upon treatment goals and objectives. If you choose to work with me, we will identify your goals for treatment during the first couple of sessions and we will then pursue an approach to treatment that is designed to help you achieve your goals and objectives. I will encourage you to pursue potentially useful life enhancement activities between sessions which may include researching relevant topics on the internet, reading self-help books, practicing relaxation or meditation techniques, and so on.
