Psychotherapy is based on the idea that we repress events and thoughts in our lives which make us unhappy or uncomfortable and that these repressions poison our behavior. Talking, going back and airing these repressions, therefore, renders them harmless. If this were true, then therapists would have the happiest lives, lowest divorce rates, and most well adjusted children. They don't! I do not believe this works and do not do it. I also do not label my clients with codes or numbers--surely a dehumanizing act which makes therapy more difficult.

If you feel blocked, thwarted, without options or direction, if you find yourself experiencing the same unhappiness again and again, then psychotherapy might be a good fit for you. My approach, in part, is for us to investigate whatever lies just outside your awareness: the beliefs, rules, & unconscious habits preventing you from creating the life you want. We will also identify rejected parts of your self so that you may befriend them and rediscover your sense of wholeness. The work can be rigorous, demanding, uncomfortable. Also warm, funny, and surprising. And often deeply rewarding. It would be my privilege to support, guide, and challenge you into the fullness of your potential.

Psychotherapy, the process of exploring, understanding and finding solutions for personal and situational challenges, is often very helpful for people facing a range of issues. In fact, psychotherapy has been shown to have similar effects on the brain as taking commonly prescribed medications for depression and anxiety! I have 14 years of clinical experience and have helped many adults and adolescents to work find relief from distress, deeper self-awareness and greater satisfaction in life. I strive to create a supportive and comfortable atmosphere within which people can explore sometimes difficult topics and find their way towards greater overall wellness.

Psychotherapy is the individualized treatment of psychological disturbances or issues. It may also be used for personal growth and self-discovery. At Lepage Associates we have therapists who specialize in common mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, relationships/couples, and general daily stress, and all are also skilled at self-growth. Psychotherapy uses the relationship and communication between client and therapist as the primary vehicle for accessing and addressing sources of discomfort or unhappiness in the client. In addition at Lepage Associates we rely on empirically-validated therapies to address problems. Psychotherapy helps clients gain perspective on their problems, in....

During my first meeting with clients, I like to ask questions and assess what their goals are for therapy. I like to recognize both strengths and weaknesses they may bring to this process. I assess any immediate risks that may need to be addressed in order for them to get the most out of the therapy process. Finally, I strive to make sure they leave the first session with a clear idea of initial steps we will take to try to improve their situation.

Studies show that clients make the most gains in therapy when there is a “good fit” between the therapist and client. Finding the right therapist is a personal decision based on the client feeling heard and not judged. I’m a compassionate and perceptive therapist who creates a safe environment for clients to share experiences, gain insight into patterns, and learn new behaviors. I help clients acknowledge and feel proud of their progress in therapy while moving them through the more challenging aspects of our work. My goal is to help my clients feel more satisfied with themselves at work and in relationships.
