He has worked with a wide variety of patient populations, as well as written articles and given professional presentations. He teaches undergraduate and graduate psychology courses and provides clinical supervision to advanced students, including the Student Counseling Graduate Assistants. Dr. Hoevet is a strong believer in psychotherapy as a powerful mechanism to genuine and lasting change for a multitude of problems. His treatment philosophy and approach target the underlying causes of problems, not the symptoms produced by them. He aims to help the patient dig to uncover the complex, often well-established roots of the problems. The result is a true, internal change, rather than just temporary symptom-relief or behavioral changes.
