I was trained in two PhD programs, one which emphasized short-term, problem-focused approaches to change and one which emphasized how these problems developedover time and the underlying dynamics involved. Consequently, my approach to therapy, supervision, and consultation often involves a blend of pragmatic strategies to address current problems as well as some exploration of their developmental contexts and historical roots. Regardless of the format, I have a tremendous respect for the healing power of a good working relationship and my work consistently reflects that focus.
