Maria Sue Butler, LMFT, Supervisor State Of Florida
LMFT Diplomate, Certified of Anger management
When clients graduate from treatment, they take with them a box full of "tools", such as effective anger management techniques, avoiding confrontations that lead to negative expressions of anger, resolving conflict peacefully and quietly, making the right decisions in every aspect of life, and perseverance to always build skills against life's problems and apply them consistently.

Our compassionate therapists provide you with expert care in a comfortable setting. We assess exactly what is causing your suffering and then use efficient techniques to end that pain as quickly as possible. Our approach is to identify concrete goals that not only include reducing symptoms, but also building on enhancing existing strengths, and developing areas you want to grow. We focus on helping clients to learn coping skills that they can use on their own to foster independence and self-efficacy (confidence that he/she can handle situations), while remaining available for as long as is necessary.

Are you struggling with a problem in your work or love life? Or are you suffering from emotional symptoms that leave you frustrated, alone, or fearful of the future? Whether you have been in therapy for years or never before, talk therapy with Dr. Swensen could be the perfect medicine. While I work on your entire personality, not just the symptom(s) you come to therapy with, it is a process of learning to say all of your thoughts and feelings, including ones that are embarrassing or leave you feeling shameful. Psychotherapy with me will offer you the chance to have the life you truly want, in love, work, and play.
Maggie Vaughan, LMFT, PhD
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; Psychotherapist
330 W. 58th St, Suite 203, New York, New York 10019
Dr. Vaughan believes that psychotherapy can benefit anyone. Clients pursue therapy for a wide variety of reasons. Some simply want an objective, non-judgmental, and trustworthy source of support and feedback, while others seek tools for working through crises. Therapy with Dr. Vaughan is engaging and active. The particular goals of psychotherapy are chosen by the client. Some examples of goals include personal growth and self-actualization, increased life satisfaction, improved relationships, greater self-confidence, effective stress management, and reduced anxiety and depression. Dr. Vaughan emphasizes that no problem is too big or small, common or rare, to be addressed in therapy.

I've been doing this over a quarter century and it always comes down to this: When you identify - and feel - what happens inside you, what happens between you and others, and what happened that you're not fully remembering or respecting, you feel better and function better. I've seen this happen across all types of people, all ages, and all kinds of problems that bring them into treatment. Of course, along the way I can help you with whatever person, boss, spouse, decision, or personality quirk (yours or theirs) that's irking you, but the real change and the real excitement come from that kind of discovery. Try it and see.

I offer clients a judgment free environment where they can feel safe and comfortable to explore solutions. Whether therapy is initiated to address a specific problem or to achieve higher levels of functioning we will work together to establish goals and to strive toward successful resolutions that provide improved well-being. Clients can expect to be supported and to be challenged to make changes that move them towards the successful completion of treatment.

Each client who comes into my room brings with them their own history; their own story. Respect is paramount. Empathy is paramount. The experience of coming into therapy for the first time, can be a daunting one. "Will he help?" "Will he get me?" "Will I be judged?" These are just a few of many that can swirl around in a client's mind. I have been doing this for quite a while. I have had a successful practice over the years, primarily because I show respect, I can put myself in the other's shoes, I am an active listener and an active participant. I ask questions, I support, I challenge in a supportive manner, I offer guidance when needed. You are not alone in this.

As we take care of our physical health by going for annual check-ups, exercising, and eating well, we must also place priority on our mental health. It is equally important and mind and body are connected. As a psychotherapist, I can guide you through a process of self-exploration and personal growth so you are able to become more aware of your patterns of thought, emotions, and behaviors. This self-awareness will empower you to change in the ways you want so you can lead and live a more fulfilling life.

True healing—deep healing—begins with understanding the impact of psychological forces and their frictions in our lives—families, ancestry, schools, cultures, friends, and work. This recognition is the catalyst for your own natural healing process and the core of my approach. I am trained in a number of models of healing, including Internal Family Systems Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Gestalt Therapy and Intuitive Healing and other techniques. I apply these techniques individually and in combination according to the needs of my clients, to help them become better parents, to deepen their intimate relationships and flourish as healthy individuals.
