My Approach:

Dr. Vincent’s approach to marital therapy begins with a thorough assessment of the individual and couple’s strengths and areas of difficulty. While his emphasis is on current and future life circumstances, understanding the role of one’s family history and life development is often important in laying the foundation for self-awareness and change. Drawing upon the information obtained through this initial assessment, Dr. Vincent works with clients to identify concrete goals for treatment. Once treatment goals have been identified, Dr. Vincent draws upon the latest evidence based treatment approaches to formulate a plan for addressing those goals and shore up the individuals’ and couple’s adaptive resources. Ongoing assessment of treatment goals permits evaluation of progress and identification of any new goals that may emerge.
