Psychotherapy is a broad term used to explain what happens in a therapy session. Psychotherapy help clients identify and express thoughts and feelings, regulate and stabilize moods and to change behaviors through behavior modification. Each client is unique and therefore psychotherapy techniques will be tailored to each individuals needs and specific goals targeted during therapy sessions.
Jonathan Gerard, DMin
208 Sunset Dr, Chapel Hill, North Carolina 27516
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.

I enjoy teaching couples and individuals about healthy ways to treat themselves so that they will learn to enjoy life to its fullness. It all starts in the mind. Psychotherapy involves talking out your problems to a professional, and speaking with a licensed counselor may help you overcome the obstacles that we face daily, as well as the emotional or psychological issues that may stand in our way.

My approach to psychotherapy is to give that individual choice and control back in their life. I utilize deferent approaches and educate you on each as we go through this. I partner with you in this journey. I believe that you are in need of healing and not something that need to be fixed. One of my main approaches is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I use this to restructure and identify thoughts and create a new way of thinking in the areas of need.

As a trained psychotherapist and counselor, my aim is to help my clients challenge and rewrite the negative automatic thoughts and negative core beliefs that they hold of themselves. Beliefs such as "I am not worthwhile" or "I am stupid" or "I am too much or not enough" were often learned in childhood. Many clients find relief from cognitive behavioral therapy which helps them examine and change negative behaviors, thoughts and emotions which lead to anxiety and depression and a host of other mental health problems. Clients also benefit from EMDR, an evidence based psychotherapy which has proven to be effective in helping those struggling with distressing negative memories and PTSD.

Psychotherapy is a process towards growth and change. I use several techniques to help my clients recognize what is happening inside of them, where it is stemming from, and find a new way of being in the world and with themselves. This process involves having new experiences which lead to exploration within a safe relationship. I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is as important as working on the problem. I help my clients develop skills to relate with themselves and others in a different, compassionate, and kind way.

Through psychotherapy, you can learn how to participate in and have a more meaningful life. Psychotherapy is a journey that can help individuals in all walks of life. Husbands can better understand and express their feelings to their wives. Fathers can learn how to have closer relationships with their daughters. Mother can learn how to accept their parenting strengths. Women with eating disorders can learn how to accept and embrace their body. Young professionals can feel more confident about the work they do. Grandparents can look back and know they were loving and caring parents. We can all learn to develop more self-compassion.
