Dr. Seitz’ approach to counseling is a collaborative approach with his clients, viewing his clients as partners in the process of seeking improvement in the quality and meaningfulness of their lives. He views himself as less of an authority and more of a consultant, encourager and resource person for his clients.

Dr. Seitz describes his theory of counseling an adaptation of “Multi-Modal” and “Multi-Theoretical Integrative” Therapies. He uses a comprehensive approach utilizing tools and concepts from all the most common and effective forms of therapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy depending on clients’ individual needs and personalities.  He emphasizes stress management and identifying and building coping resources. Dr. Seitz will usually obtain a comprehensive personal history from his clients in order to get to know them and in order to understand the context of their current challenges.  Operating from a Christian values perspective, Dr. Seitz is careful not to impose his faith or beliefs on his clients respecting their views and beliefs.
