Joel's Therapeutic Approaches

Joel takes a client directed approach that blends Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). He works from a Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT) perspective which uses the client’s feedback to quickly and effectively help them identify their strengths as well as growth edges and areas for improvement. He understands that clients sometimes feel like the only answer they can come up with is “I don’t know”, and that may leave them feeling lost, stuck, or unsure.

 Joel has a frank and direct approach that attempts to help clients build strategies, develop and implement practical tools, and create processes that help them reach goals in a way that is relevant while respecting how the client sees and understands their concerns.
