ABOUT

I believe that the job of a therapist is to help their client make the changes in their life that will enable them to achieve their goals, and be the person they want to be, doing the activities that are important to them. In order to do this, it is important to help the client understand what they are THINKING, FEELING, and DOING in the here and now that is interfering with them accomplishing their goals, AND help them to make effective changes in those domains to move towards their goals. To this end, in addition to traditional Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, it is extremely important to teach the client about the neuro-biological and psychological processes that are maintaining their current state, and to learn what can be changed, and what needs to be accepted, and how to move on despite uncomfortable situations and feelings.
