My perspective on therapy is practical and effective. It works well with many problems: depression, anxiety and more general issues. I know the importance of identifying and focusing on the unique details of the problem area. I value the importance of the collaborative process. I want to hear you and I want to assist you to be able to engage your problem on its fundamental level and I have experience doing just that. Collaboration and focus with a prioritization directed toward change. Therapy is not always easy but it should be an "effort-reduced" movement that can be very rewarding.
My approach grants multiple advantages for directly confronting problem areas. With thoughtfulness and empathy my approach grants the latitude for you to become more decisive and engaged with your life, not to mention the problem. The "problem" is attempting to tell you something. We need to find out what?
Does a falling tree make a sound if there is no one there to hear it? The difficulty in answering this riddle is the same as trying to answer your own questions about your unwanted behaviors, thoughts or feelings. You need someone else to "hear" the problem!

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Therapy is an attempt to compensate for and reduce the varying degrees of stress placed upon the individual. Major life events have correspondingly negative impacts upon one's sense of self and when there is a lack of adequate support negative patterns and habits are engaged to compensate for the loss of connection in our daily lives. Our ability to maintain ourselves and resiliently manage all forms of stress is directly proportional to our ability to identify and adapt to both small and large negative events. The small events that occur throughout the day may seem imperceptible but they can have an ever increasingly and compounding effect; which, over time, can have similarly powerful effects as that of negative major life events.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
There is no specific timetable for therapy. There are many factors which contribute to positive therapeutic outcomes and, only in combination, does one then know how long therapy will last. The exciting part is finding these uniquely individualized factors for the positive therapeutic outcome which then lets you know the "how long"--and-this is, in fact, therapy. So the question is not only "how long is therapy," as that is nearly impossible to predetermine. The more important question is "when is therapy complete" and that is answered when each individual is able to find their uniquely individualized factors that will effect positive therapeutic change.
