My Philosophy
All healing begins with a philosophy. My orientation is holistic and eclectic. This does not neglect the more physical views, as I frequently encounter physical illness or injury in diagnosis and treatment.
Each Client has their own life story, circumstances, values, attitudes, and beliefs. Although goals are set with the Client, the goal is never to alter the basic person, but to help them realize the potentials already there.

Presenting Problem(s)
This is the problem (or problems) brought into the treatment situation. It is the obvious, but not necessarily the real cause of the symptoms. Often, underlying, pre-existing situations have triggered the treatment need.

A treatment plan cannot be developed without an adequate diagnosis. To accomplish this, the Client is interviewed, questioned, a history is taken and some form of testing is given. The testing serves the purpose of corroborating impression I may have acquired.

Treatment Plan
Treatment may be multifaceted, range from one or more sessions per week (depending on need), and involve various modalities or techniques. Over the years I have used the following methods: supportive psychotherapy, brief psychotherapy, hypnosis, guided imagery, cognitive-behavioral, journaling, and dreamwork. What treatment is brought to bear is what is needed at the time. As the Client changes, so must treatment.
In some cases, spouses and/or family members may be asked to become involved as supports.

The length of treatment, as do Clients, varies. More motivated Clients accomplish results more quickly, but depth of change and not rapidity is the hallmark of success.

Email, IM, or IRQ counseling is available under certain circumstances. This must be arranged on an individual basis.

Most insurance plans are accepted.

For any questions regarding the above or issues I have not addressed, I may be contacted at my office for further information or by email.
