How long does therapy take? This is a question I am often asked and yet is so difficult to answer. So much depends on what you expect and want from their therapist. Some people want a to address a specific problem they are facing and others want and ongoing therapeutic relationship. Personally, I much prefer working with patients who are looking towards the longer term commitment. I love getting to know my patients and becoming the holder of their stories as I try to facilitate growth and change.

My approach to psychotherapy involves a comprehensive evaluation to examine the specific needs of the client. Several modalities are utilized for treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy. Therapy generally involves not only examining how our past experiences have informed our sense of self and well being, but understanding how to move forward effectively by developing healthy coping strategies. I treat individuals, couples, families in an outpatient setting. I treat both adolescents and adults.

Psychotherapy is an exploration of the internal world of the client, using that person's external experiences as a clue to what the person has experienced and believes about him or herself. When people discuss their life histories and their present difficulties I work with them to understand what the connections are, what they may be reliving and what may be preventing them from making positive and healthier choices and changes in their lives. The focus is on the present, using the past as a source of important information. Most clients experience a new, freer and stronger sense of themselves and a better ability to deal with their relationships and with life's unpredictable events.

Psychotherapy provides an opportunity for deeper understanding of our selves and how we are in the world. First, psychotherapy offers a space to finally speak about your past and present experiences with someone who is attentively listening. Putting words to these experiences and having these be heard can be incredibly grounding. From there, psychotherapy gives us a chance to be curious about patterns that we repeat again and again in different arenas without being aware. Building an awareness of ourselves helps to increase the sense of peace and satisfaction with life.

Psychotherapy is valuable for those who want to deeply understand themselves, the sources of their fears, uncertainties, troubling feelings and relationship difficulties. It can also be a way of getting to know your self.

One of the things I love most about my career as a psychotherapist is teaching and supervising interns in becoming Postmodern Therapists. This way of working focuses on a client's inherent resources for growth and healing. I focus on solutions, rather than on problems. Through deep, empathic connection, individuals are safe to open up, express their life long fears and challenges and experience the joy of moving beyond whatever "story" they've been stuck in. Clients experience this work as creative and energizing, as they explore their preferred selves and rewrite their life scripts. From depression, anxiety fear and confusion to clarity, healing and growth.

Life is full of challenges and we get thrown curve balls which we are often not prepared for. We may come from homes which were unhealthy and now being in a relationship can be frustrating and confusing. Raising children is the hardest job of all. With all that we must deal with, there are times which our own coping styles do not work. It is then that outside help is critical to reduce the risk of symptoms worsening or to spend years just "surviving." It does NOT have to be like this. I can help you sort through the pain and get to a place where peace exists, where healthy relationships exist and where you are optimistic.

I enter into each new psychotheraputic relationship with an extreme prejudice that therapy works, for most people. Finding the best fit is an important component to good treatment. It's important for the person whom you are sharing your most vulnerable and initimate information be someone you have faith in, sets good boundaries, understands your specific needs and that you can ask questions freely and without judgement. I work collaboratively with clients to better gain a sense of understanding about their particular problems or concerns. Each therapist brings their own education, personality and experiences to the therapy hour, its part of our humanness and this must be a good fit.

Meetings typically feel like engaging conversations where together we take on a problem (or a set of problems) that has been affecting your life in a way that is not what you want. Over the course of these conversations, you might expect to gain a better sense of where you stand and how you want to proceed, based on your skills, your resourcefulness, and what is truly important to you.

When we work with clients, we don't jump to conclusions to diagnose a problem quickly. Instead, we explore with curiosity, looking through 3 lenses. We ask, "What's going on WITHIN, BETWEEN, and AROUND." Looking WITHIN helps us to identify the dominant patterns of thinking, believing, valuing, feeling, and choosing that contributes to the problem. We look at how a person makes meaning within their world, honoring their experience without judgment, offering warmth and genuineness. Looking BETWEEN, we explore the patterns of relating, roles, and interpersonal attachment occurring within relationships. Finally, looking AROUND, we engage factors in the environment (job, school, family).

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Paramount, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Paramount may have flexibility or sliding scales
