Sean's professional interests include depression, substance use, grief and loss, trauma, and attachment issues. His approach is person-centered, and incorporates motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, and relational-cultural therapy.
Outside of work, Sean spends a lot of time in the natural world, hiking, fishing, and snow-shoeing. He's been moonlighting as a poet and novelist for many years, and has published several books recently.
I often ask people in the first session what is it that they want to get out of therapy. And by taking a very person-centered approach, it means that we build the treatment around their own goals: not my goals, their own goals. So I do encourage people just to have a sense of what that is, of what they would want their life to look like, post-therapy.
