Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods to help a person change behavior and overcome problems in a positive manner. Its aim is to help people understand the thoughts behind feeling anxious or depressed and addressing these thinking patterns. Psychotherapy will help you change behaviors and habits that are limiting you, to experiencing your fullest potential.

As human beings, we are wired for healing and growth. In the context of a safe, warm, attuned therapeutic relationship we can face emotions and situations that seem too overwhelming to face alone. My style is collaborative, respectful, and works in the 'here and now' with a belief in the human capacity for transforming difficult situations into opportunities for growth. Psychotherapy can help you connect with yourself and others, develop resilience to handle life's challenges, and assist you in navigating life's transitions.

My approach to psychotherapy involves both traditional and cutting-edge techniques in an atmosphere of warmth, acceptance, and collaboration. The relationship can be an important source of healing along with the use of a wide range of tools to improve coping skills and build resources. Having a safe space to talk about your feelings and focus on your life is powerful. In addition, I use techniques that help you move through stuck places more quickly. We all have had negative events in our lives that have affected us and have caused stuck patterns and beliefs. There is a way out with the techniques I use such as EMDR and EFT. You can let go of the past and move on. I am here to help.

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.

Psychotherapy is not anything to be scared of, or intimidated about. Seeking out a therapist or being in therapy isn't an admission of weakness or some kind of character flaw. Therapy is a collaborative process and a partnership with someone who is trained in and experienced with facilitating personal growth. And in this process, you are in the driver's seat. Our minds and emotions and relationships involve complicated machinery just like our bodies do and in the same way a medical doctor helps you stay physically healthy, Psychotherapy is designed to help you be and stay mentally and socially strong, and continually in a position to take on life's many challenges as your best self.

The word psychotherapy means healing for the soul. Sometimes your soul can use some care when difficult circumstances bring a lot of stress on you. You can find yourself making choices and acting in ways that are ineffective or hurtful to yourself or others. That’s when psychotherapy can help you manage your thoughts and emotions so they help you get through hard times. In those times it’s easy to lose perspective and a coach who listens and provides guidance can be very helpful to assist you in getting your life back on track.

Brief therapy focused on solutions to help reduce anxiety, fears, worry, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, stress and obsessing. While understanding the past and the 'why' of having anxiety, fears, or even phobias may help, what really makes recovery effective is learning new skills for relaxation, new ways to think productively, and the lifestyle behaviors that reduce stress and anxiety. My 23 years of working with these problems and the associated depression that often follows with anxiety and the major clinical research agree that cognitive - behavioral therapy works. I use a variety of tools to help you get relief and overcome fears, anxiety, worry, and depression.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

Psychotherapy is a process of a therapist working directly with you, most often talking together, in a way that helps relieve anxiety, depression, compulsions, phobias, and other mental health concerns. There are a wide range of techniques used. I use some of the most researched and proven methods - Cognitive Psychotherapy and Mindful Awareness. Essentially this is a way of teaching you how to better understand you thoughts and feelings, and to train your mind to work differently, in a way that allows you to be at your best - more happy, at peace, and more effective in you life.
