My Approach to Helping
I believe in the unconscious (subconscious). It's in charge until we make the unconscious conscious. Which is what therapy does. No other place (therapy) does that specifically. I've seen where people are reacting more from their past and their erroneous self-narrative than what is happening presently. Unfortunately, for many the self-narrative is negative and self-deprecating. They are not in the present. Due to family dynamics, negative parental attitudes and behaviors, criticism, nurture deprivation and a lack of empathic attunement in childhood, the person winds up with a terrible self-esteem and the belief they are defective. In reality, they are not. Imagine when the person experiences all the above and abuse, how much further the self-esteem, self-worth, sense-of-self sinks into despair, depression, anxiety, self-sabotaging behaviors, poor choices in life partners and circumstances.
I practice the type of therapy that aggressively attacks the false narrative. This type of therapy that I use allows you to gain insight into your unconscious and understand the origins of the negative self-narrative and work through the wounding that took place, so that you are realistic and non-pathological (asymptomatic) in your self-assessment. The goal is to have a realistic appraisal of ourselves. If you have questions about my practice don't hesitate to email me either at Goodtherapy or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
