In his professional career of 40 years, the practice approach has incorporated Solution Focus
Treatment, Ericksonian approaches, and Mindfulness as a clinical resource with an appreciation for
culture, diversity and creativity within the individual.
Reflecting upon my 40 some years of professional practice, it is difficult to capture the sum of those
experiences and, in many or few words, my best efforts to capture my life and professional learnings is
that the roots stem from Ericksonian Therapy and Act and Acceptance Therapy approaches by which I
strive to be pragmatic, innovative, and client-centered in my collaborative dialogues between myself as
the clinician and clients thus stressing resource discovery and the development of Psychological Wellbeing.
