Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I bring a wealth of life experience to my practice in addition to considerable psychological studies, training, and clinical experience. My therapeutic orientation is most closely aligned with the principles and theory of Existential-Humanism. Psychotherapists in this tradition believe that people have an innate capacity for positive growth, self-determination and self-actualization, tend to focus more on current behaviors, and view therapy as involving an authentic, collaborative, and egalitarian relationship between therapist and client. Therapy is centered on the existing person and oriented to the unique being or essence as it emerges, becomes, and unfolds. The therapist is a facilitator of change in the client’s work.

I am a husband and a father, and I believe in the value and importance to maintaining vital mental health to commit to and regularly engage in work, relaxation, fun, good diet, exercise, and activities that feed ones soul, to the extent that is physically and emotionally possible.
