James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

I have been a psychotherapists for adult individuals and couples for over 30 years. My approach to therapy is an ecclectic one. I am trained in many theories and techniques so I can provide services tailored to the specific needs of my clients. My clients learn about themselves and get the tools to use in their lives to achieve their goals. These tools involve cognitive and behavior skills to take actions in their relationships and jobs. They also develop tools of insight improving their self knowledge allowing them to make better decisions. I am supportive and interactive as a therapist.
Konstantin Lukin, Ph.D.

Psychotherapists at the Lukin Center are trained in several treatment styles, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and emotionally focused therapy (EFT), both of which are widely researched and have been shown to be effective for many clients. CBT is a structured treatment that helps clients change their thoughts and actions in order to change their attitudes and beliefs and meet their life goals. EFT was developed for couples and adapted for families. Through this treatment, the therapist helps the couple or family identify maladaptive patterns in members' interactions with one another and replace them with healthier, adaptive interactions in which everyone feels supported.

Mindfulness is the key to opening up space to looking at and changing our most sacred guiding principles which repeatedly limit our options or otherwise have us colliding with realities that defy our learned expectations. Our fears of cleaning house of strategies that fail us are two fold: 1) We are afraid of betraying the internalized images of our caregivers, and 2) We are unsure of ourselves to replace the old with the new. A secure attachment to myself neutralizes these fears. Through modeling and attuned compassionate, accepting, and nurturing responses I will teach you how to re-parent yourself and mourn the losses of mistakes made by your caregivers.

I believe it is a privilege to have clients tell me their stories in psychotherapy. Clients often benefit from the process of unburdening themselves from the pain and upset they have been dealing with. I work in a very respectful manner to help clients start to change their perceptions to a more positive place. I am specifically trained in a solution focused, cognitive behavioral and family systems approach. These approaches tend to help people in a structured, timely manner to achieve the goals they have for their own therapy.

The word "psychotherapy" gives a picture that an old man with a beard will analyze you from behind a couch. While not disrespecting that form of intervention, my concept of being a psychotherapist is to provide understanding of the psychology of they way our minds function while using this knowledge to provide incite into why we are needing help. I have extensively studied various forms of therapy and have integrated what works for the person as a whole. My approach is humanistic. This means that understanding the place you are in and relating to your feelings validates your experience. We all need that to trust ourselves to create change.

Psychotherapy is a space for you that should feel safe and comfortable enough to talk about the thoughts, feelings, situations, and behaviors that are most upsetting to you, as well as to share your successes and desires. Each person needs something different to create that environment; and I will listen to what you need. Feeling comfortable with your therapist and keeping open lines of communication are two vital components for psychotherapy to be useful - so it is very important to find a therapist who is a good match for you. Call or come in for a consultation: If you do not feel I can be helpful, I will assist you in identifying another therapist or treatment that will meet your needs.

Psychotherapy is really a generic term that embraces all the approaches to improving an individual's subjective state of mind, as well as his or her behavioral, social, and vocational functioning. A broad range of treatment approaches has evolved as means of bringing about such improvement. Unlike many therapists, who were trained in one approach, which they apply to all clinical situations, I use a variety of approaches, tailored to the particular needs and personal styles of each individual. As a result I have been able to help a wide range of clients to meet their own particular treatment goals.

if you have tried more contemporary approaches to therapy with little or no success, incorporating a psychotherapeutic approach into therapy may be the answer. Psychotherapy guides clients to deal with any past or childhood issues that may emotionally be holding them back from achieving their therapeutic goals. The psychoanalytic theory believes that childhood events and unconscious feelings and motivations play a role in mental illness. Therefore, psychotherapy involves looking at childhood experiences in order to discover how these events might have shaped the individual and/or contribute to current actions. Call me at 973-348-5279 to learn more about if psychotherapy is right for you.

I individualize therapy to each client, and will look for your strengths- not just your weaknesses. I believe in a comprehensive approach to therapy, and mix aspects of many different therapy styles. I especially enjoy working with mothers, children and adolescents, and combine my "clinical" knowledge with real life experience. I never suggest medication as a first stop, as I would rather really give you something- by helping you adopt new thought processes and coping skills.
