Psychotherapy is the most effective and lasting way to change the way you feel. Some of the benefits of psychotherapy are: increase in self confidence, feeling lighter and more hopeful, getting to know yourself better and be more accepting of who you are, identify triggers and buttons so that you reach your full potential, and living the life you were intended to live. My approach to psychotherapy is to have a conversation together that will be benefit you in nearly every area of your life. I provide a safe supportive non judgmental environment in order to have an open, honest and meaningful conversation.

Licensed Mental Heath Counselor, Certified Imago Therapist

In 33309 - Nearby to El Portal.

The issues we deal with throughout our lives are based in a myriad of beliefs that evolved as a result of childhood experiences. As a psychotherapist, I guide you into an exploration of the beliefs and actions that create limitations and blocks to healthy relationships with ourselves and others. If you have a belief that says "I'm not good enough" you will create, unconsciously, situations and relationships that enforce that belief. Therapy is about transforming these limiting beliefs...opening you up to all life has to offer.

Psychotherapy is a general term that describes what therapists do. But when do well it focuses on the process of therapy and not just a quick fix or answer to your problems. Most people that come into my office know what they need to do but can't seem to do it. Psychotherapy involves both of us looking into what is getting in the way of you making these changes. I always tell my clients that I trust their instincts and if they do not or cannot do what is needed there is a reason why. Uncovering that reason and learning to listen to your instincts is what I believe psychotherapy is at its core.

Board Certified Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach

In 33134 - Nearby to El Portal.

We approach the treatment of mental Illness by encouraging the exploration of unresolved and deeply rooted conflicts, often of an unconscious that may lead the person to behave in rigid and self-defeating ways, by questioning the veracity and effectiveness of distorted ways of thinking and perceiving the world and by empowering the person to modify behaviors that perpetuate psychopathology and emotional disturbance. We also include life-coaching techniques to help people set attainable goals based on personal values, abilities and interests.

Psychotherapy or "talk therapy" is a therapy that works by helping individuals express their concerns or difficulties and working with them on finding ways to cope with their current stressors. Therapy sessions can be conducted individually or in a group. Research has shown that most people that receive consistent psychotherapy with trained clinicians show a decrease in their current symptoms and an increase in their quality of life.

Psychotherapy helps you to understand what helps you to feel positive or anxious, as well as accepting your strengths and weaknesses. If you can identify feelings and ways of thinking you can become better at coping with difficult situations. Psychotherapy is commonly used for psychological problems that have had a number of years to accumulate. It only works if a trusting relationship can be built up between you and I.

We are committed to providing what you need to grow and heal. Don’t be afraid to ask. That’s the first step toward growing into the person you were meant to be!

I will work with you to assess your current thought patterns and how negative thinking patterns can contribute to your symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress. We will work on challenging and replacing the negative thoughts with more constructive thoughts. We will work together to learn how to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships, by focusing on mindfulness (your ability to accept and be present in the current moment), increasing your ability to tolerate negative emotions, rather than trying to escape from it. We will also work on strategies to manage and change intense emotions that are causing problems in your life.

Thankfully as the years pass there is less of a stigma about individual psychotherapy. With my many years of traveling I have realized that this paradigm in South Florida has shifted. It used to be there must be something wrong with you if you go to therapy while in cities like New York, there is something wrong with you IF YOU DON'T have a therapist! Individual therapy is a gift to yourself that will help you identify stuck patterns and unhelpful ways of solving problems in your life. It can also be a place where you have an unbiased sounding board working with you to reach your goals. In my office, I offer a safe space for you to work towards your goals whatever they may be!

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.

Not all psychotherapy is created equal, there are multiple schools of therapy with their own interventions. Just like anything, once you find the right one for you, it will click. Psychotherapy works, but part of the process is searching to find someone that you connect with to evaluate your life. Psychotherapy is not advice, it is not venting, and it is not complaining about the same thing. Psychotherapy is an active practice between the therapist and the client to work on setting goals and working towards them. There is no magic in the psychotherapy process. Luz is to support clients through this process and hold the space for them to find themselves.

Psychotherapist/Family Therapist

In 33324 - Nearby to El Portal.

Psychotherapy is a combination of two words: "psycho" referring to mind and "therapy" involving a process of treatment intended to relieve or heal a problematic issue. Mind is interconnected with emotions, spirit, body, relationships, or performances. Debilitating issues of the mind can result in mood disturbances, behavioral, social, educational, somatic and relational problems. I work collaboratively with clients in identifying underlining issues of mind, then assist with deconstructing the problem or exploring meanings to achieve desired goals for relief, resolution, or healing.

Psychotherapy or counseling can be brief and focused on a particular issue. Sometimes it can take the form of Life Coaching, focusing on creating and reaching goals and helping you to gain clarity and make better decisions. It can also be a vehicle for helping someone to examine his life more fully and gain a better understanding of what drives or motivates him.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

There are many different approaches to psychotherapy. I combine several different theories when working with clients to find the one that works best for their symptoms and maximizes treatment outcomes. Many patients I have worked with in the past have tried therapy and have not been successful. Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment to identify baseline functioning. We then work together to develop a treatment plan and continue to monitor for progress using assessments. Modality can be modified depending on client preferences and receptiveness of treatment.

Simply put, sometimes two heads are better than one. Psychotherapy can be a time to discover and discuss deeply held secrets. It can be a time to learn new skills, like how to deal with panic attacks or get to sleep at night. It can be a time to heal. It can be a time to cry. It can be a time to simply get advice on the next move. It is different things to different people. I do not hold to a simple, cookie cutter practice of psychotherapy. Each person is an individual and each person deserves to be heard and seen.

Then finding out exactly what you need and want I will choose the techniques that will get you there the fastest, the best current methodology available. Psychotherapy is helping you live life , becoming free of fear and uncertainty, and having love and joy instead. Learning to be present and mindful will stop the endless hours of worry and stress.
