There are many different approaches to counseling.  As an integrationist, this counseling practice incorporates several methods including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic theory, humanistic theory, and relational theory.   While the modality of your counselor is very important, numerous studies have found that the most essential component of an effective counseling experience is your ability to connect with your provider.  Dr. Goldenberg strives to create a safe, collaborative relationship with clients that honors the strengths and resiliences of the client.
