I use a practical-problem-solving approach based on cognitive-behavioral principles. Usually see clients between three and six months, longer or shorter depending on the complexity and severity of their concerns. During the first session, we would explore your particular concerns, establish some provisional goals and determine whether your needs and my style are a good match. I tend to be most effective with clients who play an active role in their treatment.
