"Authentic living can be difficult. Life's paths often do not warn of the hardships that lay ahead. Building a trusting relationship with you and creating an environment that you can explore your hardships is paramount to me. Whether you are an individual or a couple, I strive to bring to light the problematic behaviors and thought patterns that interfere in your life, in order to help you make choices that promote a more congruent and authentic living experience. Theoretically, I am psychodynamically driven with strong ties to cognitive therapies but use a variety of techniques to meet your needs."

"Dr. Cole practices therapy from a Client-centered perspective, which holds fundamental assumptions about individuals and the therapeutic process; the actualizing tendency of every person and the self-authority of the client. Client-centered therapy is focused on individual differences and not predicated on an authoritative therapist doing something predetermined to the client. This approach assumes a basic trust in the person and on the actualizing tendency present in every person to grow, develop, and realize their full potential; a constructive directional flow toward a more complex and complete personal development. It's this directional flow that therapy aims to release."
