Treatment Approach: My training in the theories of Psychosocial and Family Systems as well as later instruction in the use of the cognitive behavioral approach to therapy has informed the manner in which I provide mental health services to the individuals and families with whom I work to achieve their goals for healing, change, and personal growth. The process of change requires a willingness to accept one’s strengths, set realistic goals and objectives, and to believe that change is possible – one step at a time.
