Eclectic

Eclectic therapy integrates a variety of approaches and philosophies in order to create a treatment program to meet the individual client’s needs. An eclectic therapist may have a favorite technique, but they will often employ all that are available to them in an effort to treat their clients as successfully as possible. Eclectic therapy, usually balanced between listening and advice giving, is highly personalized and can be beneficial for a variety of mental health problems or emotional stresses.

In my work with people I draw from a background in numerous models. With couples I utilize Gottman principles, attachment styles, personality indicators (Myers Briggs and the Enneagram), Prepare/Enrich, Burns, Fruzetti (DBT), and various other authors including Terry Real, and Nagoski (plus more for intimacy and sexual wellness). And my work with individuals includes Compassion-Focused Therapy, CBT, DBT and Gestalt Therapy.

I don't believe that there is a 'one size fits all' theory of counseling that works for all issues. I believe that being person-centered is essential to every therapeutic relationship and provides the basis for change to occur. Sometimes, a CBT technique could help, sometimes an an attachment based intervention might work - I attempt to sit with clients and work with what seems best for them.

This style best describes my work after 35 years. I do not want to imply that I have a lack of interest in specific approaches, but it is important to adapt my approach to the personality, strengths and needs of my client. I like to begin with the simplest interventions first and progress through relational and internal dynamics as effective and welcomed by the client. My underlying belief is that human well-being is supported through a sense of internal coherence, meaning and connection.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

B.S, M.S.

I find that the relationship that is able to occur between the therapist and the client is going to have more to do than any techniques used which is secondary. My 'eclectic' approach has allowed me to draw upon many years of experimenting with what works, therapy-wise. It doesn't have limits to a particular style so I'm free to bring the best to my approach. I am continually evaluating with the individual what is needed to bring a greater sense of peace in body and mind.

I tend to draw from many different theories and perspectives as I have not found one particular method that suits all or most clients. I appreciate the many theories and interventions I have had exposure to and have found most to be useful in some way for some clients. I work instinctively relying on the relationship built and the requests that clients make such as needing a particular understanding or type of skill in order to determine which approaches to draw from.
