Counseling Orientation

While many practitioners limit counseling to only one theory, I combine several. Not all clients benefit from the same approach. Thus, while cognitive-behavioral theory acts as my foundation, I also teach several self-psychologies and self-management techniques (eg, meditation, self-hypnosis, parts-work). Clients also gain much benefit from my focus on cultural psychology and spirituality as a means of expanding awareness, freedom and choice. Overall, I tailor my approach to the needs of the individual. It is a short-term process that helps people overcome personal and social obstacles and realize their greater potentials.
