Dr. Arvin Paul is a skilled psychologist who integrates a variety of approaches, including psychodynamic, emotion-focused, relational, experiential, existential and transpersonal. Taken together, these traditions enable him to uniquely tailor his work to the needs of a given individual or couple, giving the work power and efficacy. His belief is that true therapy is about results, so the accent is on accelerated and actual achievement of goals. His work is infused with a warm, collaborative, and humanistic style. Dr. Paul derives great satisfaction and meaning in successfully supporting others heal and grow through a wide range of presenting concerns, including but not limited to relationship challenges and transitions, trauma, anxiety, self-esteem issues, depression, grief, existential concerns, life purpose and direction, belongingness, and finding deep and authentic meaning in life. The management or alleviation of presenting problems is essential, but a distinctive feature of his work is ongoing attention to the possibility of exceptional well-being and flourishing.
