What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Honesty and effort. The patient needs to be honest with them selves throughout the process, which is one of the most difficult things one must do. Additionally, the patient must give effort, however small or incremental; for without effort there is no progress.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

The therapeutic process is a difficult one, which is in line with my life philosophy: in order to get through the hard times, one must work harder.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My general style is direct, honest, and challenging. However, the style and approach to therapy changes and is adjusted from patient to patient, depending on the needs of each individual patient.

Work History

I received my doctorate degree from the California School of Professional Psychology. I have experience working with diverse populations; which includes substance abuse/addiction clients, young adults dealing with life stressors in a college setting, inpatient psychiatric hospital with psychotic clients, and currently work in a forensic setting with inmates in a maximum security prison. Additionally, I have worked as a consultant with a psychology study course company and I help clinicians to pass their licensing exams if you or someone you may know needs help with their exams. My therapeutic orientation includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic theory. I generally like to utilize psychodynamic to help the client gain an understanding/insight into the root of their mental health issues, and subsequently utilize CBT in order to formulate a treatment plan in order for the client to reach their goals. I look forward to the opportunity to help you gain greater life satisfaction and achieving your goals.
