Craig brings an empathetic, collaborative, and non-blaming approach to therapy. He truly believes that each individual is the expert of their life and that it is imperative to separate oneself from their challenges. Through skills, beliefs, values, and commitments, anyone can recreate their perspective of their life story. Craig creates an environment that allows the client to feel comfortable exploring this and process any current difficulties. He was drawn to the field because he believes life provides us with many challenges that can be difficult to navigate on our own. Craig’s curiosity about this and dealing with his own personal challenges of self, family, and friends, gave him the desire to help others learn how to process and work through these obstacles. He encourages and empowers all of his clients to increase their resourcefulness and confidence by working through and solving these difficulties from a more client-driven aspect.
Craig has a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Addiction Studies and Mass Communications from Texas Tech University. He also has an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. He utilizes a variety of therapeutic techniques with each client. These include Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Person- Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, externalization, and the integration of mindfulness.
