The following links will give you a better sense of how I approach therapeutic issues. They are all behavioral therapies.

ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITTMENT THERAPY
ACT is the basis for most of my approach to therapy issues. ACT's motto is : Embrace what you have and move in the direction that matters to you. ACT is a mindfulness and acceptance based therapy.

FUNCTIONAL ANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY
In my opinion, FAP is a distillation of why therapy works when it works. FAP teaches therapists to pay attention with compassion and patience to  what is most important in their client's behaviors, both inside the therapy room and outside. If ACT informs what I do in therapy, FAP informs how I do it.
