Neil believes that therapy should provide a space to reflect, a space to learn and ultimately be a worthy investment. Approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strength Based Counseling, Recovery Oriented Counseling are just some of the approaches that Neil utilizes in practice.
Treatment planning and goal setting are essential to track the effectiveness of therapy, and client’s should be willing to partner with Neil to come up with their specific care plan to treatment. Therapy is not a one size fits all model.
