My Approach to Helping
Hello. As a professional, individual and couple's treatment provider, I believe skilled psychotherapy requires a number of different factors, while taking place within a relaxed respectful professional relationship. A therapist needs to have an excellent understanding of human behavior, problems that can result or disorders that can develop, and how people can progress to grow and change. There's no place for therapist disrespect or condescension, a dynamic that all too often derails treatment.
Examining one's difficulties by talking about them is a very important aspect of treatment. Interestingly, and reflecting a great amount of wisdom, William Shakespeare wrote many years ago, "Put Your Sorrow Into Words. The Grief You Keep Inside You Will Whisper In Your Heart Until It Breaks." Some contemporary trends in treatment are really nothing more than transient fads, with traditional talk therapy being often irreplaceable.
