My highest priority is to improve the quality of life of individuals and families suffering from psychological difficulties. I encourage my clients not to avoid times of challenge and distress but to utilize them as opportunities for re-prioritizing, transformation and personal growth. I am committed to helping each of my patients to identify what a purposeful life means to them and to mutually working through whatever obstacles may interfere with living that life.
Joseph is a Certified Cognitive Therapist from the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, the only credentialing organization for Cognitive Behavioral Therapists. He also has special expertise in Rational Emotive Behavioral therapy and received training at the Albert Ellis Institute. Joseph is also a Board Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor.
Since Cognitive Therapy has become the most proven and recommended type of therapy, many psychotherapists now claim to know how to do Cognitive Therapy, unfortunately very few are actually credentialed or trained to do so.
