Approach to Therapy: My therapy conceptualization is greatly influenced by the Buddhist concepts of ego and identity, attachment, and their relation to suffering. As a result, my approach to therapy leans toward the cognitive and behavioral, albeit in a fairly non-prescriptive manner. My hope is to create an environment in which clients can gain a different perspective on their difficulties, resulting in increased self-awareness and a decrease in suffering.
Approach to Supervision: Because there are so many different ways to conceptualize psychological difficulties, my hope is to help supervisees to fully hone their conceptualization and their subsequent treatment decisions. While direct guidance/suggestion is sometimes necessary, I tend to prefer an egalitarian atmosphere for supervision. I always take the developmental level of my supervisee into account and may shift my approach somewhat to accommodate this (e.g., moving toward less client/session review and more toward a consultative approach as the supervisee develops).
