Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gleaves "My philosophy of treatment is grounded in research-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and is distinct from less formalized practices known as "counseling" or "coaching". Drawing from established outcome-based frameworks such as Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (Albert Ellis Ph.D.) and Reality Therapy (William Glasser MD) an initial problem presentation is focused on for accurate definition allowing therapist and client to agree on the goals of therapy and desired outcomes. The process of refining the presenting problem may take 2-3 sessions, including completion of a psychosocial history and administration of standardized assessment instruments so that an operational definition of the presenting problem(s) can be placed in mutually understandable terms. As CBT tends to be more directive than passive, the client is presented with a variety of skills which, upon review and active practice, help the client better address and resolve difficulties in their lifestyle."
