This is primarily an emotional-based, rather than a cognitive change approach, which focuses directly on changing the client’s emotional experience. In general the goal is to help new behaviors, beliefs and attitudes which are more healthy to become emotionally comfortable habits. If you believe exposure to this model will be helpful for your practice, please contact Dr. Mau.
Dr. Mau is also interested in encouraging interns who want to explore creating their own private practice, or the possibility of practicing on a fee for service (not insurance-based) basis. However, LPCAs who are interested in practicing in any setting or by any modality are encouraged to contact him.
Dr. Mau is the author of two books. He speaks internationally and nationally on counseling related topics, and received a professional award in 2013 in Zürich, Switzerland, for research advancing the profession. He is a featured plenary speaker at the upcoming conferences of both the South Carolina Association of Licensed Professional Counselors (SCALPC) and the South Carolina Counseling Association (SCCA).
Dr. Mau does not provide client hours for interns, but may invite his supervisees to observe client sessions. He does provide both individual and group LPCA supervision hours.
Dr. Mau provides supervision at his office at 1705 Richland Street, 29201, in the lovely Historic Homes district in downtown Columbia, as well as at a Forest Drive (Columbia, 29206) location.
