Dr. Tiegs received his PhD in Counseling Psychology from the Unviversity of Florida where he received training as a Scientist-Practictioner. This focus means that Dr. Tiegs uses empircally-based treatments to inform his counseling and that he uses his counseling experiences to inform the research he does. Further, the program at the University of Florida values and teaches an integrative approach with a strong emphasis on Multicultural competence. This means that Dr. Tiegs has broad training in many areas and is especially aware of and sensitive to the many ways that clients differ and the impact that sex, race, social economic status, religion and sexual orientation have on clients and on the counseling process.
