Licensed Health Service Psychologist
 

WHAT TYPE OF PROBLEMS DOES DR. HYDE WORK WITH IN HIS CLINICAL PRACTICE?

Anxiety, depression, stress, sexual dysfunction, relationship conflicts and family discord are the types of difficulties with which Dr. Hyde has been most successful. Couples having trouble understanding and dealing with each other is an area of particular focus for Dr. Hyde. For the last 15 years, he has worked a great deal with men and “men’s issues” and has led numerous groups and workshops helping men to effectively deal with their changing roles in our present day culture.

WITH WHAT AGE GROUPS DOES HE WORK AND WHAT THERAPEUTIC APPROACHES DOES HE USE?

Individual, family and couples therapy is provided to adolescents and to adults of all ages and Dr. Hyde has worked with children as young as 8 if they are involved in “family therapy”. Dr. Hyde utilizes problem focused, solution oriented strategies in working with clients and he is quite comfortable doing therapy on a “short term” basis encouraging people to return as needed over time. Therapeutic interventions can include: Dr. Hyde’s offering alternative ways of viewing problematic circumstances, role playing, recommended readings, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), “open seat work” (Gestalt Therapy) in which a client has the opportunity of dealing in the present through imagination with individuals with whom he or she might have “unfinished business” from the past, work with dreams, men’s groups, plus consultation with other family members when appropriate permission is given.

WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED DURING THE INITIAL SESSION?

During the initial contact, Dr. Hyde and you and/or the family will identify and discuss your therapeutic issues or concerns and your treatment goals for improving your situation and a mutually agreeable treatment plan will be developed. Through this discussion, it will be determined how often to meet and a time frame for intervention will be set. For the first session, Dr. Hyde will get acquainted with you by asking lots of questions about your circumstances and background. This “getting acquainted” portion of the initial interview is important as clinical research has clearly shown that it is the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client which is the crucial ingredient for therapy to be successful.
