Donald S Scott, Psychologist in Dayton
Over 30 years of practice, I have found it helpful to focus therapy on four areas: (1) the quality of a person's relationships and how these relationships impact the person's primary emotional concerns, (2) how the person's primary emotional problems impact their loved ones, (3) developing coping skills for particular emotional problems and (4) practical problem solving solutions for various life issues. Since most people are emotionally and physically overextended and their time is overcommitted, together we also work on ways people can take better care of themselves.
By the second session, we develop a general idea of the person's current problems and what led up to them and consider any medical conditions complicating the picture. Then we draw up a list of about three to five issues to address and focus on in therapy.
Feedback from my colleagues is that my manner is calm, deliberate, quiet, and open but also active.
