John Caleb is passionate about helping clients cultivate inner strength and resiliency and utilizes a multidimensional approach to combat the antagonists’ of psychological and spiritual well-being. John Caleb integrates a number of the theoretical models during counseling to include Structural Family Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT), Cognitive Behavioral Family Therapy (CBFT), Narrative Therapy, and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Sessions are also meaningfully informed by attachment theory and the latest findings from interpersonal neurobiology. Despite effective models of psychotherapy being incorporated into counseling, John Caleb believes the most crucial ingredient accounting for change, is not the theoretical model applied or even the counselor, but the client and his or her willingness to change.
