We utilize a culturally sensitive integrative poly-therapeutic approach that follows the American Counseling Association's Ethical Guidelines and Best Practices.  It's an eclectic approach that blends western evidence-based scientific research with time tested eastern philosophy and practice.  

Our approach is aligned with industry success rates, and permits us to meet the needs of our diverse clientele, while fulfilling our mission, vision, and values.

Counseling-Coaching Success Rates: We Focus on the 60%

  • 80% of clients get better with counseling-coaching
  • 40% of factors leading to success are outside of the counselor-coach control
  • 30% of the success is due to the client-counselor therapeutic relationship
  • 15% of the success is due to the counselor-coach technique
  • 15% of the success is due to client's expectations (i.e., attitude, beliefs, goals)

Core Foundation: Primary

Nearly everything we do is grounded in the principles and values of Person/Client-Centered Therapy (P/CCT).  It is a proven global-cultural humanistic model that 
best mirrors the 60% success rate data mentioned above.  Also, it allows us to add advance techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).  With P/CCT, clients can expect the following environment and experience:  

- Unconditional positive regard, genuineness, and empathetic understanding
- Therapy occurs in an organic manner according to the client's needs
- Teamwork: You set the goals and we work together to achieve them
- Mitigate feelings of distress, increase self-esteem, and self-expression
- Greater trust, decreased defensiveness, insecurity and guilt
- Improved mind-body wellness and healthier relationships

Note: Individuals who are experiencing hallucinations, delusions, or other breaks with reality are not good candidates for P/CCT.  The client needs to be in touch with reality in order for P/CCT to work.

Core Foundation: Secondary

To enhance our core foundation and to compliment our poly-therapeutic approach, we add two client-centered humanistic models.  We do this because it strengthens the 60% success rate mentioned above, and best represents who we are, both personally and professionally.  Our clients benefit from Gestalt and Existential therapies because:

- Focus is on the present or what is called the here and now
- Facilitates role playing and re-enactments of past experiences
- Healthy-Safe confrontation and questioning
- Ideal for couples, family, and group therapies
- Enhances advance techniques, such as CBT

Advance Techniques

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Utilized alone, therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral (DBT) are highly efficacious.  However, when added to other therapeutic models, such as CCT, we now have very powerful tools.  For example, there are many clinical depression trials that prove cognitive based therapies are as good, if not better than treatment as usual practices (i.e., anti-depressant pills-pharmacology).  

Cognitive therapies help to crack the vicious cycle of negative thinking and feeling, which produce poor outcomes (i.e., behaviors). Clients can expect the following environment and experience:

- #1 therapeutic technique for depression and anxiety
- Teamwork, but therapist is more active
- Goal oriented and problem solving
- Questions, homework, and mind-body exercise
- Identify inaccurate and negative thoughts
- Reshape thoughts, leading to positive behaviors 
- Develop emotional and life stress management skills
- Decrease anger, stress, and rumination
- Improved wellness and healthier relationships
- Gain greater life meaning, purpose, and fulfillment
