Approaches

He is professionally trained in over 10 counseling approaches and can address most problems brought to counseling.  Some approaches he uses include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused, and more. Most importantly, Mitchell seeks to simply create an easygoing, enjoyable, and even, entertaining, atmosphere.  Mitchel likes to point out that society’s perception of counseling is outdated and often wrong.  In counseling, you receive guidance, insight, and even have fun….  The experience is not about telling you what you are doing wrong, but rather figuring out what you are doing right and using that to recreate parts of life you want to revise.
