Sometimes skill based learning just doesn't do the trick. Many of my clients have gone through skill based therapies reporting that they learned new skills, but that the skills were not enough. Adlerian psychotherapy is for children and adults. We focus on how you find belonging and significance, uncover mistaken beliefs, and remove the obstacles that have gotten in your way.

Psychotherapy may benefit anyone with an interest in learning and improving something about their ways of acting in the world and in relationships. People often come to the process because they feel stuck in their capacity to be successful in some area of life: in their important relationships, in their success at work, or some inner state the becomes problematic for them. Therapy can help you: -- Find new ways to cope with stress, anxiety, anger, depression, and other emotional difficulties. -- Improve your communications skills. -- Get "unstuck" from past relationships and family issues. -- Heal past injuries. -- Discover creative ways to problem-solve. -- Improve your self-esteem

Psychotherapy is a form of "talk-treatment" with psychologists which uses scientifically validated procedures to help you develop healthier and more effective habits. The form of psychotherapy I most commonly use is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is effective for problems with unhealthy behaviors, depression, anxiety, anger, and concentration. I have a more practical approach to treatment so in psychotherapy with me, we will discuss the problem bothering you and how to fix it efficiently, practice coping skills to address the problem, and then implement these into your life. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

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.

I believe that individuals are resilient and have the capacity to make positive changes in their lives. Psychotherapy, while sounding like a "mysterious" term, is working with an individual to overcome patterns of feelings, thoughts and behaviors which cause you distress, pain or unhappiness. You will find a safe and non-judgmental place to overcome feeling stuck in patterns that stifle your happiness and personal growth. Every person is unique, and I work to understand your individual circumstances, family background, feelings and circumstances. You can experience feeling peaceful, happy and hopeful though our work together.

Psychotherapy - for those willing to take the journey - can be one of the most amazing experiences we do in life. When a person gets insight into their own psychological processes, and achieves that understanding of how it all comes together and interacts on a psychological level, it can be really empowering, liberating, and exciting. This can also be a bit scary to try because usually there is a lot going on before someone decides to find a therapist. But any journey starts with that first step - and that first step can be a great step.

One does not need to hit rock bottom to seek psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is a privilege for everyone facing life's stresses/conflicts. Unlike prescribed medications that serve to suppress symptoms of our minds & bodies, one day at a time, psychotherapy goes to the roots of the issues, and then resolves them. That means, we don’t need to take meds all our lives. In the quiet, accepting, and safe environment of psychotherapy, we are invited to open up the parts of ourselves that were shut down, to free the knots that entangled our hearts. We talk through things and take away an arsenal of tools to reclaim our lives. Help is available. You can come home to your true self which is love.
