In fact, my Myers-Briggs personality configuration is an INFJ, one of the rarest types for men respectively. Some extracurricular interests and subsequent hobbies include creative/academic writing, reading, painting/drawing, collecting vinyl records (audiophile), watching movies, and spending quality time with family and friends.
My approach to psychotherapy in general and toward clients in particular may be considered rather unorthodox in its approach even though I seek to utilize the latest advances promoted by the wider field of Clinical Psychology respectively. I mainly operate from a solution-focused perspective blended with pragmatism from the principles of logic, problem-solving abilities, and critical-thinking skills."
