Steven Flannes, Ph.D.: Clinical and Psychotherapy Biography

I have been a psychotherapist since 1977. My specialty is working with adults. I see people in both short-term, specific problem focused treatment, or in long term, more depth oriented work. My approach is to create a setting where we have an active focus on what is currently pressing or concerning, and try to stay aware, through discussion and feedback, of what is effective in our work, and what is not. I strive to keep the relationship vital and focused, continually focused on the client's perception of our progress.
