Psychotherapy serves to help people understand themselves better and learn how to affect their environment - their work, family, and social relationships in a way that helps them live a richer, more satisfying life. Therapy is unlike any other relationship we have in life, a therapist can support you unconditionally and give you honest feedback that most other people in our lives won't give us. This allows us to see ourselves more fully which gives us more opportunity to choose how we want to be. Obviously, I believe everyone can benefit from this type of self-exploration. Whether, you are suffering from a tough situation in life or you just want to live life more fully and understand yourself and your relationships more fully, therapy can help you accomplish your goals.
Going to therapy takes courage. Courage to be honest with yourself and honest with another human being. Most of us have things we do not like about ourselves, our lives or we have ways that our habitual patterns limit us in our life. Therapy simply helps us understand these things and be able to have more choice over how we show up in the world. I work to help people understand this by partnering with people and letting them be in the driver's seat. I call the work that we do self-exploration, because it is with an open attitude of curiosity that we are able to learn the most of ourselves. Nobody is broken; there is nothing wrong with any of us. And, we can all benefit from good honest self study. Not only do I embody this philosophy in my practice, I don't just sit in the therapist/facilitator seat. I also sit in the client seat. I also have a therapist and participate in several retreats and workshops each year to continue my own growth as a human being.
