currently working on his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. While at Avila, Mark assisted with psychological research about learning theories, comparing therapeutic approaches, and performance anxiety. Mark has experience working in a psychiatric hospital with children and adolescents. He gained experience working with individuals, groups, couples and families during his work in private practice.
He treats therapy as a way to help patients solve their own problems and learn more about themselves. Mark incorporates CBT techniques, skill building, and positive psychology into session. He believes that therapy is about helping others with current situations and making improvements that can be long lasting. Mark is passionate about psychological testing and performs a number of evaluations including tests that target personality traits, clinical symptoms, ADHD testing, and cognitive abilities such as achievement or intelligence testing.
