I primarily use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which focuses on helping us clarify what's important in life while developing the skills to be more effective in achieving our goals. This can be a challenging process, as it often means encountering difficult thoughts and feelings that we would prefer to avoid. With your willingness and my training, we can work together to help you become the person you've always envisioned.

My approach to psychotherapy begins in working on developing with each of my clients an atmosphere of trust and respect. I believe that making the decision to engage a therapist in order to work on one's particular life challenges, is one of the most healthy choices we can make.! It is a choice for health. My clients benefit from therapy with me by experiencing a quick reduction in their anxiety and a clearer understanding of what they are up against - with themselves, their relationships and their lives. From that place of increased calm and improved self-understanding, my clients can then begin to make thoughtful and productive life choices.

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.

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.

Psychotherapy in Greek means "healing of the human spirit". Sometimes people just need a little support and they find their way. Other times therapy can help individuals work towards facilitating a positive change and improve ones quality of life. Many individuals report that they are able to increase their self awareness and self understanding. This leads them to self growth and an improved way to manage their particular situation. Therapy can help individuals who struggle with a wide range of symptoms and conditions such as depression, anxiety, relationships issues and problems, stressful life events and internalized trauma.

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.

Psychotherapy provides an avenue for processing feelings, changing dysfunctional patterns, and understanding how to better address life's challenges. This is achieved by talking to an objective therapist and exploring patterns of behavior that you may not be aware of or do not know how to change.

My training and my practice have all involved psychotherapy in its different manifestations. I first learned the Reflective Approach from Carl Rogers, PhD at the University of Chicago. I then learned more analytic therapies, brief therapies and other skills such as hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing, and Biofeedback. Some of these techniques can be only used in the office.

Psychotherapy is a process of self discovery and skill learning. If a person comes in to learn some new skills and is willing to take the responsibility for meaningful change to occur, then the success of our work together goes up dramatically. I see psychotherapy as a process of working together on the things that the client wants to address with compassion and acceptance.

I believe our current struggles often have a link to past struggles. I work with clients to understand the both/and. What are the current challenges and struggles that you want to improve or change and in doing that how is it link to the past. In other words what previous distortions or hurts are causing the person current struggles and how to they build current health to grow and heal from previous hurts.

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.

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating term. Society has caused a lot of people to believe that seeking help has negative connotations. In reality, it's a sign of strength that you can acknowledge there's a problem and be brave enough to seek out a solution. Psychotherapy will do just that. I can help you navigate through whatever problems you may be facing and aide you in alleviating your symptoms and overcoming these obstacles.

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

Not every counselor has the ability, patience or interest in doing psychotherapy which I see as different from counseling as men are from women. I'm an experienced psychotherapist who has helped man clients deal with the internal and family of origin issues which lead to repetitive negative patterns of thinking, feeling and behavior. I'm not only a good listener, but engage the client in a process to feel more related with their internal lives so they can make healthier life choices. My clients have reported feeling more content and capable as a result of our work together.

Psychotherapy as a whole is a form of support I strongly believe can help anyone struggling with a wide array of issues. Simply having the space to confide in someone who is safe, non judgmental, validating, and consistent can make a great impact in your healing process. I value client-therapist alliance and am a firm believer that the relationship between a client and therapist is the most important factor in whether therapy will be deemed successful by the client.
