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.

There's an old saying: "If you can't talk about it, you can't work it out." I agree. This is where psychotherapy can help. If you choose to work with me, we will work together to help you learn how to express yourself in ways that help you to identify your needs and how to get your needs met. This isn't always so easy, in particular if we are feeling guilt, anxiety, or shame. Many people simply aren't used to talking about some of the challenges of their lives. Perhaps this speaks to you. I understand. That was me at one time. What I can tell you is this: for over 25 years my clients typically report feeling better because they feel heard, understood, and truly cared for.

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.

Having the desire to deeply experience, explore, and feel our emotions that are related to both present and past circumstances is at the core of the process. Unexamined feelings can often lead to negative feeling or experiences which their cause is not understand. The process of understanding one’s feelings and emotions allows us to grow. Psychotherapy can awaken us to discover the real reason we choose our behaviors.

The fundamental building block of successful psychotherapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist. If the client doesn't feel safe, accepted and respected, therapy cannot proceed effectively. So we start there--with a strong therapeutic alliance--and we begin to explore the underlying issues that have led to the problems or concerns the client comes to resolve. Often this takes us back to childhood, where many of these issues originate. We bring those childhood issues back to the present and see how understanding the past can help us change the way we interact in the present. Ultimately it is the clients goals that dictate the course of the therapy.

Dr. Sobo integrates traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy with progressive psychotherapeutic interventions such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness training. These techniques help to treat the effects of patients presenting problems as well as traumas. Patients learn to facilitate emotional and cognitive processing, as well as cultivate self-awareness of inner body sensations. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy has been reported to reduce symptoms of PTSD, nightmares, panic attacks, and hyperarousal, while providing tools to help increase feelings of safety and a sense of control over one’s self.

Psychotherapy can be a life-transforming experience. While it can help you to identify your problems and figure out ways to cope with them, therapy is much more than just problem-solving and symptom reduction. It can also help you identify and correct destructive patterns of thinking and behaving that may be impeding your growth. The possible benefits of psychotherapy are endless. They include increased self-awareness and self-esteem, healthier relationships, and a more fulfilled life. The foundation of good therapy is the relationship between you and your therapist. It is essential that you find someone with whom you feel a comfortable connection. Your therapist should create a safe, accepting, positive environment where you can explore even...(view profile to read more)

I think that psychotherapy is a great way to unearth the difficult patterns from our past that bog us down. I really believe that psychotherapy will help clients to discover who they are truly meant to be through the processes of discussing their family of origin and the dynamics that occurred. I've seen clients struggling with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, and much more greatly benefit from psychotherapy.

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.

Going to someone to talk about what is on your mind can be difficult, yet exciting at the same time. It takes courage to share your inner most thoughts and feelings with a complete stranger. I provide a calm and serene setting for my clients to talk about the things that are on their minds and gain the tools to start managing their lives better. Whether it is for anxiety, depression, child/adolescent issues, anger management, addictions, and so on, I provide a safe place to talk about and sort out things to become a more productive and happy person.
