8 years of experience
Solution oriented

Driven by a passion to support others and a keen fascination with the human mind, I embarked on a journey to become a therapist. My practice specializes in assisting LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as those grappling with Depression, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder. With an approach that's person-centered and rooted in evidence-based practices, I pride myself on being down-to-earth, approachable, and authentically "Real".

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our initial session will be a structured intake, designed to paint a holistic picture of where you are in your journey. Through a series of questions spanning from your reasons for seeking treatment, symptoms, family background, and other psychological, social, and health factors, I aim to grasp a deep understanding of you as a person. This comprehensive bio-psycho-social approach ensures that our subsequent sessions are tailored to your unique experiences and aspirations.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

What sets me apart is my flexibility in approach, and my genuine commitment to meeting you exactly where you are. Drawing from a plethora of therapeutic approaches and modalities, I adapt my methods based on your evolving needs. This dynamic approach, combined with my specialized training in Depression, Anxiety, and LGBTQ+ concerns, ensures that every session is both meaningful and impactful.

About Pierre Hooten



My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Having undergone training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I recognize its power in addressing and reshaping unproductive thought patterns that influence our feelings and actions. During our sessions, I use CBT to collaboratively pinpoint specific thoughts and beliefs that might be holding you back. We then work together to challenge and reframe these, equipping you with actionable strategies to better manage life's challenges. This approach can be transformative, especially if you're seeking tangible tools and techniques to break out of cycles of stress, anxiety, or negative thinking. Each session is tailored to your unique situation, ensuring you gain the most benefit and empowerment from our time together.


Having undergone training in the psychodynamic approach, I appreciate its depth in understanding an individual's inner world and its influence on current behavior and feelings. In our sessions, the psychodynamic method allows us to delve deeper into your past experiences, helping illuminate the root causes of current challenges. By uncovering patterns and defense mechanisms, you gain insights that empower you to navigate life's complexities with greater self-awareness and autonomy. This approach can be particularly beneficial if you feel recurring patterns in your life or relationships that you wish to understand and change. My aim is always to tailor this introspective journey in a way that feels safe, respectful, and beneficial to your unique needs.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

Drawing from my educational background and training in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), I value its forward-looking and goal-oriented approach. When employing SFBT in our sessions, we concentrate on envisioning your desired future and the steps needed to get there. Instead of dwelling on past challenges, we collaboratively identify your strengths and resources to pave the way towards positive change. This method is particularly beneficial if you're seeking concise, goal-driven therapeutic support that offers tangible results. Our time together is optimized to prioritize your goals, harnessing the tools and techniques that align with your unique aspirations.
