Quoted From:

"People often come to therapy because we do things that we know are not in our best interests, like letting our anxieties talk us out of doing things that are scary but necessary. Yet even when we know this, we still get caught up in our old, frustrating patterns. Ron"s therapy approach is to begin by exploring the non-logical beliefs (think of them as assumptions, expectations and perceptions) that we have about ourselves and the world around us. Usually this entails looking at a person"s cultural, familial, and personal histories in non-blaming, non-shaming ways. The most important part of the therapy experience, however, is in helping clients take the steps that are necessary to disprove these beliefs and to learn new, more empowering ones. Often this means supporting clients as they gently push themselves into situations that challenge their old, limiting ways of seeing themselves and their world.Ron received his B. from the University of Hawaii and his M.. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Miami University in Ohio. He has worked at university counseling centers in Ohio, Maryland and Oregon. The primary models that inform his therapeutic approach are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy."
