Treatment Philosopy and Approach:
  • I believe therapy involves learning new skills, gaining insight, and ultimately changing one's behavior to meet one's goals.  In addition, therapy involves a respectful, trusting, collaborative relationship between therapist and client.  All of the services I provide have been studied extensively in the research literature for many years. As a behavioral psychologist, one unique feature of my practice is that, depending on the presenting issue, I am willing to meet  clients outside of the office to help implement therapy skills in the natural environment.  Another unique feature of my practice is that I am a Professor of Psychology at local university, where I teach and conduct research on mental illness, personality development, and psychotherapy effectiveness.  I have published and presented over 50 articles on these topics and I draw upon my extensive research and teaching experience when working with my clients.
