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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In psychotherapy together, you and I, we will work to understand the meaning of the symptoms and/or situations that brought you into psychotherapy in the first place. Whatever the symptom there is a reason for it? Together we will discover why you are suffering this. We will look to clues from past ( family and relational dynamics) and see discover what unconscious thoughts, patterns and beliefs might be the source of this suffering. Much of the healing that will occur in our work together will come from making the unconscious conscious. Through increasing conscious awareness patients have a decrease in symptoms, improved relationships, and an increase in life-satisfaction.

Psychotherapy can also be called, 'talk therapy', with the ultimate goal towards bringing relief from problematic symptoms that may stem from emotional and/or psychological turmoil. I have worked with clients in psychotherapy in a number of ways, but namely creating an open space during a therapeutic session in which an individual can discover new insights into their problem areas in order to create healthy choices for improved relationships. During psychotherapy, we will look at conflicts and problem areas that create continued roadblocks & conjointly examine how someone's past experiences may be reflective towards making changes today; we will unpack this impasse to open new roads ahead!
