Theoretical Orientations & Goals in Therapy
Eclectic Orientation and Application as indicated, including:
Cognitive Behavioral, Existential Humanistic, Problem Solving, Strategic, Psychodynamic, Family of Origin, Cross-Cultural, Insight, and Psychoeducational
 

It is my belief
that no child or individual's goals should be sacrificed for the benefit of reaching goals in a couples' relationship or in a family. Individual and relationship or family goals are not inherently oppositional.

It is in reconciling individual goals with family issues that the couple or family can achieve and maintain healthy long-term success in meeting its needs. Couples and families that function without its members satisfying their individual needs exist in stress, pain, and difficulty.

CHILDREN:
Assessing temperamental & learning styles, assessing development, fostering expressive maturity, promoting self-esteem, security, & stability, assessing family roles and boundaries.

TEENAGERS:
Self-esteem & self-sufficiency, helping in the search for identity, resolving his or her changing roles in the family & society, reconciling social & cultural pressures with family expectations & personal needs.

GOALS IN INDIVIDUAL CONSULTING & COACHING
Identification of problems and problem-solving (for description of differences between Therapy and Coaching).
INDIVIDUAL WORK:
Learning to take care of oneself, self-nurturing, greater self-esteem, replacing maladaptive behavior with more constructive behaviors, living life in the present.

COUPLES WORK:
Improving communication, greater clarity in the relationship, recognizing family of origin interferences, understanding male & female cultural differences.

FAMILY WORK:
Recognizing family dynamics, clarifying roles, recognizing family of origin interferences in the family, assessing functionality, establishing boundaries, improving communication.
