What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

Dr. Blackbird is personable, warm, and good-humored. You will experience him as patient, compassionate, supportive, and candid with you. He will make you think, and he will make you laugh! In your initial session, his first priority is simply to get to know you. He has learned that if he doesn't take time to do that, things won't go well! Sessions are generally done "remotely" (by video chat). We typically meet for 50-60 minutes, and the time goes fast! Sometimes sessions are weekly, or every other week, or monthly, depending on your needs. Your sessions will be comfortable and relaxed. Dr. Blackbird will gladly meet with you individually, or with your family or significant others. The things you talk about are held in strictist confidence. However, Dr. Blackbird is well-known in the community for his willingnes to coordinate care with other caregivers in your life: pediatricians, PCPs, teachers, other therapists, pastors, guidance counselors, psychiatrists.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

Life IS a journey. And it can be difficult. The goal is to learn not only to face challenges, but to grow from challenges. The key to a life of happiness and fulfillment is learning what it means to BE healthy, and how to cultivate healthy relationships with the people in our lives that are important to us.

Work History

Dr. Blackbird will work with you from a theoretical framework that best meets your needs. He works largely from a cognitive-behavioral orientation, but has considerable background as well with behavioral psychology. When dealing with family and couples issues he primarily works out of an "Emotionally-Focused" framework. "Dr. B" does not prescribe medications, but has considerable background with psychopharmacology. With your permission he will coordinate medication needs with your family physician, pediatrician, or psychiatrist as needed. He is committed to provide the best possible psychological services within his areas of expertise and to reflect the value system of the Christian faith. This commitment to the whole person includes an integrated approach when dealing with psychological and spiritual concerns. A client's faith commitment is valued, and spiritual leaders important in a client's life will be contacted at the client's request.
