My Approach

He specializes in "Self in Connection" theory which emphasizes the connection to self and others as the primary way of forming a healthy self-identity. It is through an individual's resonance with their 'core self' that they are then able to enhance their relationships with others. Joe has participated in, and presented at, advanced trainings in Self in Connection Theory through the Jean Baker Miller Training Institute at Wellesley College. He also uses Energy Psychology to enhance traditional 'talk therapy'.
