He believes in a collaborative therapeutic process in which the client and therapist work together in identifying presenting problems and establishing goals. The goal is to help the person come to new insights about one’s issue in a safe and supportive environment while resolving them in a collaborative manner with the therapist. This process helps to build confidence and empower the person in taking control of one’s life
