CBT, Gestalt, Psychoanalysis
My main clinical focus has been depression, behavioral therapy, stress, abuse, and crisis counseling. I am sympathetic to the issues, emotional stability, and sensitivity that clients face on a regular basis. I believe that the science of psychology has been too focused on the negative side of client interactions rather than the positive side. My approach is to use positive emotions and experiences to help people work through the symptoms of negative experiences.
