My Approach to Helping
I believe that being human means we are primarily interpersonal. That is, more than anything else, we relate. We have relationships. We have them with ourselves, with our family, our partner, our friends, our pets, our hobbies, our spirituality etc... Almost always, when we look closely at our concerns and struggles, they will involved some kind of relationship. So improving our ability to relate to others effectively will improve our satisfaction with life.
Now, much of the work I do is focused on how individuals deal with the complexities of all of their relationships. It seems to me that when we feel like we are relating well with others that we are feeling pretty well in general.
