I believe that everyone can benefit from psychotherapy. We live in a busy world and because of this, we often put our own needs aside to focus on others. However, we all have difficult periods in our lives, along with issues that cause frustration and therapy is used to heal those upsetting feelings and learn constructive ways to deal with them. This is accomplished by making changes to the parts of your life that aren’t working for you or are contributing to your issues. Some of the main benefits of therapy are the feelings of validation and understanding that you receive, the new perspectives that you gain on various issues, and the learned techniques to cope with life’s frustrations.

If you’re looking for someone who nods and smiles and leaves you feeling oddly confused about what you’re accomplishing in therapy, I’m the wrong person for you. Any trained professional should be able to offer you ‘a safe, compassionate space’ to talk about your feelings. But if you want to see real change in your life, you need to do something different. My approach is goal-oriented. I want to help you clarify and achieve your goals. Once we figure out what you’re struggling with, we’ll come up with an action plan, with weekly assignments designed to get you unstuck, and heading in a healthier direction.

The issue is not what happened to you, it’s the impact it had and how you are able to deal with it. Psychotherapy helps. It involves our talking together to address the problems you’re having in your life. We’ll see what works, what doesn’t, why not, what you’ve tried, and what other options there may be. We’ll look to understand how the difficulties came to be and what gets in the way of changing them. We’ll see what’s happening in your life now and how old patterns of thinking and behaving may interfere for you. We’ll explore other alternatives. I strongly believe people can change, and I see that happening in my office regularly. You’d be surprised how therapy can change your life.

Does therapy really work? Yes, it does! Talk therapy is not only effective, but it helps you build neurons as you stretch your capacity to think and feel. Do you ever feel as if you are doing the same actions over and over and it leads to the same results? I can help you understand the patterns of behavior that in the past may have lead to less than desirable outcomes. Therapy is an incredible tool which enables you to see problems and situations from a different perspective. Finally, therapy is a safe place to talk about the things you may not feel comfortable saying to anyone else. Call me for a free 15 minute consultation.

Nancy D Young, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

As life gets increasingly complex, occasionally we just need somebody to talk to… someone who cares, but who does not have a personal agenda with us… someone to bounce things off of, from whom we might acquire skills and tools that haven’t occurred to us, someone to walk with us as we sort things out. Psychotherapy gently facilitates the exploration and resolution of personal and/or interpersonal concerns according to our own specific individual needs and goals.

Carolyn Hudson, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lakewood

I provide a safe environment for you to share your story, address the challenges you are facing, and explore your hurts, hopes, and dreams. My approach to working with you includes a combination of psychodynamic, existential, and attachment-based concepts. I believe your history is important and we take time to address and understand how it has impacted you. We will look at how the person you are today is working for you and address areas that keep you from reaching your current goals. I also want to know how your past affects your ability to be in relationship with others. I will walk alongside you through this journey of healing and personal growth.

Are you struggling with stress overload, anxiety, or depression? Are you going through a difficult life transition? Psychotherapy can help. In my work in psychotherapy, I bring a balance of respectful, empathetic listening, and introduction of skills and strategies. We would work collaboratively together to determine which approaches would work best for you. There are many Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) tools to choose from. Some are faster working, while others work more gradually, taking smaller steps. Would you like to feel less anxious, less depressed, less overwhelmed? Take the first step today. Call me for a short phone interview to see if I might be the right therapist for you.

Psychotherapist

Lauren Muhlheim, Psy.D., FAED, CEDS

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Lakewood

My approach to psychotherapy is cognitive-behavioral. This therapy is a collaborative effort between therapist and client to solve the client’s problems and improve functioning. It is goal-directed and short-term. I work collaboratively with my clients to address current problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be interfering with daily life and relationships. I try to provide rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms while also promoting long-term behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse. I help empower clients to become their own therapists rather than foster their dependency on me.

Ask yourself, when was the last time I invested in me, my own well-being and overall health? Psychotherapy offers you the opportunity to express your unspoken fears and worries in a healthy way while learning insight as to the causes of the underlying issue. While supported by your therapist, you have the opportunity to explore and process the impact of life events (ie., childhood experiences/relationships, major life changes such as marriage, birth of a child, divorce, loss of a loved one, and current relationships) in a non-judging environment that will afford you the opportunity to improve your overall level of functioning.

Psychotherapy brings insight, and there is some relief in this--sometimes even joy. But what heals people from pain, freeing them to move on from developmental states of being stuck, is a relationship of integrity and empathic responsiveness. Together the client and the clinician explore the issues that brought him or her through the door. It's a safe place to feel your feelings, to cry any necessary tears, and to say what must be said. More than this, it's a regularly recurring chance to be heard as you figure out what you want your life to be, and how you can become the stronger person that you ultimately are.
