I believe being in therapy is about having a place of safety and support so that you can express your thoughts and feelings. By using a present focused approach I create a caring environment that will help you make changes in your life.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missoula specializing in psychotherapy with individuals and couples. I have over 20 years experience working with people who are dealing with depression, anxiety, loss/grief, trauma/PTSD, ADHD, and relationship issues. I have a Bachelors degree in Cultural Anthropology.
My focus is on using a cognitive behavioral approach to understand patterns of thinking and change self defeating beliefs; and developing mindfulness skills to create greater self-acceptance and satisfaction in your life.

Paul is a wonderful counselor,. I feel that he really listens to me with empathy and compassion while offering manageable solutions to the personal issues I’ve discussed with him.
Paul is a very competent and understanding counselor, I highly recommend him .
I appreciate the sessions so far. I do feel my journey with therapy is not over just yet.
Paul has a strong understanding of ADHD and childhood trauma and their effects. He's very understanding of the experiences I've had and how they affect me now.
Paul was my very first counselor and I have nothing but good things to say about him. He was very caring and attentive during our sessions while creating a safe and friendly environment. He provided me with a lot of beneficial input on future career options in psychology as well. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a counselor!
Paul is a great listener and offers a variety ways of making think thru my issues. I am thankful for this connection.
Paul is great. Makes you feel very comfortable when speaking and converses with you as if you’re a friend. Not necessarily like a Doctor to a patient and is very understanding.
Excellent, sympathetic, knowledgeable therapist! I very much enjoyed working with Paul, and found him extremely helpful with my problem. He was very good at offering advice and helping me see the situation more clearly. He was empathetic and responded to the issues I presented, and was a useful resource during this hard time for me! Very good therapist and would definitely recommend to others.
I'll recommend Paul Dokey and Better help. It's really useful platform with experts.
