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.

The process of engaging in psychotherapy can be a rich and rewarding experience. With a kind, engaging and inquisitive mind, my approach to therapy is based in humanistic, client-centered and existential philosophies. I truly believe that each person has within them the power to heal through thoughtful exploration of emotional patterns, spiritual concerns and resulting experiences. While focusing on present-moment concerns, the past will arise and show its influence. We will work together to piece out what is necessary to explore but not dive into your entire past. Sometimes this is necessary, sometimes it is not. I encourage each person to work with me in guiding their healing process.

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.

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 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.

One-on-one counseling provides an opportunity for people to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings while being assisted by a professional and caring guide. Clients often seek individual therapy due to some recent stress in their lives, or due to an ongoing conflict they have been unable to resolve alone. Although some people intially worry that talking about themselves will be awkward or uncomfortable, most people find individual sessions enjoyable and growth enhancing. While the client gains greater focus on her/his thoughts and feelings, the therapist acts as a non-judmental guide, helping the individual recognize patterns and finding ways to aviod past problems.
