Cimino integrates several therapeutic styles and techniques, including EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, and Rational-Emotive Behavioral Therapy when working with clients to develop individualized goals and the best possible treatment and recovery outcomes. He believes that each client is unique and understands the emotional and physical toll addiction and mental health disorders take on clients and those who love and support them.
