Skip feels a connection when helping others develop insight to make positive changes in their lives. Skip believes that thoughts and feelings are the impetus that drive human behavior. His approach then to therapy is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Theory. In creating a paradigm shift from negative thoughts and feelings to increased positive thoughts and feelings, maladaptive behaviors often dissipate. Skip also believes that traumatic experiences exacerbate the lives of many of his clients and therefore, utilizes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Preferred Clinical Modalities: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Reality Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psycho-education and others.
The decision to engage in therapy can be difficult, however, you don't have to suffer alone. Please take the next step and call my office NOW! You're strength and resilience lies within you!
