In my work with clients I artfully blend a variety of approaches to therapy that work towards short term and long term goals.  How I work with my clients depends on the specific needs of the individual, couple or family.  Basically, I like to take a collaborative approach to treatment planning and interventions.  A few of the approaches that I have experience with include:   

Multi-generational: focusing on how one is shaped by the family they grew up in.   
Family Systems: focusing on understanding circular causes of behavior within the marriage, family and greater community.
Existential: focusing on how effectively one is dealing with the realities of life and moving towards a greater sense of personal authenticity.
Humanistic: focusing on the conditions needed for growth, enhanced self-worth and the actualization of human potential.
