Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on a person's thoughts and beliefs, and how they influence a person's emotions and actions. As a client, you will learn how to identify distorted or unhelpful thinking patterns, recognize and change inaccurate beliefs, relate to others in more positive ways, and change behaviors accordingly. CBT's ability to help change a person's thinking to be more adaptive, effective, and healthy, while helping them change unhealthy behavior patterns, will lead to the alleviation of symptoms and an improved quality of life.

Most of us don’t think about our mental health until we have a disorder or a serious problem that impacts us negatively. Many of us have learned communication, coping skills, and parenting skills from our caregivers which have not always been positive or helpful. Through our life experiences we develop good or bad habits, a positive or negative world view, effective or poor communication skills, healthy or unhealthy coping skills. Therapy by a professional can teach you new skills and behaviors to improve your relationships, increase your satisfaction and happiness, and improve your overall well being.

I've been a psychotherapist for over 15 years using a unique form of therapy - somatic psychotherapy. Somatic means body. This form of therapy focuses not just on the way that we think or understand our lives, but also on how we feel and physically experience it. One of the central concepts in somatic psychology is the fact that we come into the world as sensing and feeling beings. Words, thoughts, cognitions all come later, and are built upon our pre-existing somatic understanding. It is therefore paramount that we work through the body, and not just talk about our problems and try to fix things. That is also important, but insufficient for real transformation.

I am broadly trained in Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic therapy. As needed, I will utilize and borrow from various other approaches including ACT, CBT, and art therapy amongst others. I believe to create lasting change, it is necessary to discover the roots of the underlying problem. We will then create and utilize the tools required to bring about change.

We manage things on our own just fine, but some things just don’t get better despite our best efforts. That’s where psychotherapy can help. It helps by developing new ways of looking at the issue, gaining a better understanding of the situation, learning new ways of thinking and exploring other options and choices, all with the aim to get unstuck from the old unproductive pattern. People can and do change, and you can too. It’s like most things, if you ignore it, nothing changes. But if you focus on it and work for a positive change, it does happen.

John Kane, AMFT, APCC

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91710 - Nearby to Monrovia.

In laymen's terms, psychotherapy is the opportunity to talk about and process your problems or challenges with a trained therapist. Sometimes, we don't need someone to try to fix our problems for us, which is what most of our friends try to do when we talk about them. Sometimes we need someone who will listen and be a sounding board so we can think through and process for ourselves. I want to support you with your goals and your needs and we can make a therapy plan (psychotherapy or other types) that you feel will best suit your needs. Most importantly, I provide that safe environment for you to be able to be vulnerable, talk about, and process whatever is on your heart and in your mind.

I am a psychodynamic trained therapist. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a form of depth psychology and is similar to psychoanalysis. It is also known as insight-oriented therapy and focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behavior. The goals are for a client to become self-aware and understand the influence of their past on their present behaviors. The psychodynamic approach enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships.

Psychotherapy is not a teaching session and it is not advice. It is an honest search for what we do not see. The goal of psychotherapy is to acquire insight and clarity, create new priorities, gain the courage to change, and move towards restoring your life. In our work together, we will focus on how you understand yourself and others, particularly those people to whom you feel close. Our time together may include discussing experiences that sometimes reproduce pain and distress. We will work at your pace to explore your distress in a way that is meaningful and ultimately healing.

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.

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.

Marriage and Family Therapist, Psychoanalyst

Good psychotherapy requires listening, understanding, and eventual effective interpretation on the part of the therapist, and the willingness to work toward change on the part of the patient. It does not call for a "God-like" knowledge by the therapist, but for a collaboration by therapist and patient in moving towards more functional living.
