Here to Serve and Support

Counseling Philosophy & Experience

"I believe how people think about their lives affects the way they feel about themselves and their life experiences which, in turn, affects how they behave.  I believe helping people to find meaning, purpose and satisfaction in their relationships and in their life experiences is an important aspect of counseling. I am very interested in learning from and traveling to indigenous cultures around the world to expand my understanding of mental and spiritual health in my efforts to support my clients' growth."    

  I am a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist with over 30 years of experience helping people deal with individual, relationship and family challenges. I work with children and adults and I specialize in, among other issues, depression, anxiety, grief, anger management, communication skills, conflict resolution, self-esteem, work-and school-related challenges, effective mindfulness practices as well as helping clients find wholesome and healing meaning in their lives. 

Teaching and Learning In Asia

Dr. Farley’s counseling approach is informed and guided by the wisdom of Christian, indigenous Native American, Peruvian and Tibetan healers as well as Western counseling theories and practice. 

For the past 9 years, Dr. Farley has traveled to India and, in 2012, to Nepal to work with educators and students on topics that include child development, the power of student-teacher relationships, effective classroom management skills as well as the integration of traditional Tibetan Buddhist values with modern academics. He has the privilege of teaching for The College for Higher Tibetan Studies on-site and in Tibetan refugee camps and monastic environments.  


SPARKE Into the Students’ World, a handbook for educators written by Dr. Farley, has recently been published by the Swedish humanitarian Non-Governmental Organization, Individuell Manniskohjalp, and has been distributed throughout the refugee education system in India and Nepal. 


Thank you for visiting Dr. Farley's website. I look forward to working with you.
