Calvin Woodland, PsyD, LPC, LPCMH

Philosophy of Care

My counseling philosophy and orientation incorporates solution-based, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and rational-emotive approaches.  I have found these therapeutic provide an eclectic framework from which therapist can adapt approaches and use those tools that can meet the diverse needs of clients we serve today...  I have an extensive experience with clients from diverse backgrounds in terms of age, culture, racial-ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientation and world view.  My clients consider me to be compassionate, supportive and open-minded in responding their particular psychosocial and emotional needs.  My work experiences include working in suburban and large urban institutions.  My experience, practice and training has well-equipped me to utilize my breadth of experience and professional training to meet the array of needs impacting the lives of contemporary life in America today.  As an executive leader in higher education, I have always endorsed and supported program and services to serve the needs of our LGBTQ and ethnic minority community by supporting  the funding of  leadership and weekend retreats to encourage dialogue and engagement among students from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

As a therapist, I work incessantly to instill courage that will provide that strength-based approach for clients to acquire the ability to empower themselves to create new possibilities to develop more productive coping mechanisms and strategies to achieve happier and fulfilling lives.
