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

I believe that my life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap to a fair extent. I believe that each of us has the strength and power within to make certain changes and that we all need some assistance from time to time to help bring about these powers within to the surface both personally and professionally.

How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

I believe that collaboration is an invaluable part of practicing. There is so much knowledge that can be gained simply by listening to those around us who may have similar circumstance with which they are dealing.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My style or approach to therapy is to create a comfortable environment as soon as possible with the person. I find that over time some personal disclosure can be helpful once a therapeutic relationship has been built. My style also includes gently challenging unhelpful thoughts and to confront unhelpful thoughts with reality challenging a person's errors in thinking in the process.
