My most commonly used therapy techniques include CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, and Person-Centered approaches. At my core, I am a teacher, motivator, and relator.

Darin takes it all in and then provides these take home “pearls of wisdom” that help guide you through. He listens to your story but knows how to dive deeper to get a sense of the “whole picture” and how you can work together to learn from your experiences , easily identify similar people/personalities in the future and better approach a similar situation next time.

Darin was my first therapist. I didn’t expect things to roll well. Extremely easy to talk to and relate with. Offered new perspectives and information to absorb. Highly recommended.
