How Psychotherapy Can Help

To equip you with better coping mechanisms and natural ways to feel better and be more independent in feeling better in the future. An opportunity to discuss problems with someone who has helped other people with the same problems in the past. Creative ways to reach your goals and objectives. It helps to have a compassionate, understanding, neutral/unbiased person listen to you.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

To find oneself again, return to wholeness and balance of mind, body, spirit.
To find happiness and improved quality of life or goal attainment.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Helping people become more happy and successful.

My Role as a Therapist

To guide someone in their return to themselves and to be the vehicle (not the source) for healing or knowledge.

My Therapy Focus

Symptom reduction/extinction, fostering the rebuilding of positive internal constructs through a positive, professional, educational relationship for improved well being.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

Their life and relationship history, patterns of being, values, current problems.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

To give it a try, see if it is a good fit, commit for a period of time to meet/not give in to resistance from psychological defenses but learn from them instead. It might not be fun and feeling good but "tough love" or educational. When one is ready, they will persist. Motivational Interviewing.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Try a different kind of treatment or therapist.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Demonstrate techniques that work to feel better and less stressed and less overwhelmed.
