My approach to therapy is emotionally focused and experiential. This approach is very different from the cognitive approach that has been favored for decades where individuals are encouraged to think differently in order to feel better or behavioral approaches that favor problem solving and behavioral changes. Thanks to cutting edge neuroscience, we now know that the cognitive part of our brains cannot reach the mid part of our brains where our emotions lie. For this reason people often express feeling stuck even after having thought exhaustively about their problems. And the best efforts at problem solving by friends and family often don't seem to work. When people seek therapy they are essentially trying to feel better, not think better. And behavioral approaches that ignore underlying, avoided emotion rarely result in true transformation as well. This is the reason that diets don't work over time.
Life can be painful and we experience loss and trauma in our present day lives and therapy can be helpful in facing these challenges. We also suffer from defenses developed early in life that once protected us but no longer fit and now block fulfillment and create suffering. This is often seen in repetitive patterns that seem to defy logic and create suffering. Individuals can continue to loop in these patterns, immune to friends' advice. Only by accessing and experiencing the emotions and experiences that these patterns are defending against can we really experience transformation. When I help clients really deeply excluded feel excluded emotions, the mental clarity that has been elusive emerges. This is known as a "bottom up" approach to change.
