Corey's therapeutic approach is goal driven and works to identify where his client wishes to grow and then, through careful collaboration, determine how it can be achieved. He works primarily with Reality Therapy, which emphasizes personal control of self, the ability for one to meet their needs in a healthy manner, and the acceptance that the actions one chooses are what makes up one's behavior. He is trained in EMDR and hypnosis and applies both in working with PTSD, trauma, anxiety, and for pain management from physical illness.
Corey's philosophy of treatment is to teach his client in how mind and body work so that they can make their choice in how they choose to live and interact with others. LGBTQ+ Friendly
