He has received training a variety of modalities including classic cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and Ericksonian hypnosis. He believes that an integrative approach based on the fundamentals of understanding one’s attention, thoughts, and behaviors is essential for achieving and maintaining good mental health.
