Psycho therapy is founded upon talk therapy - my passion is helping my clients become comfortable being an active part of their growth and change. I am a person centered therapist - meaning my role in therapy is to help you develop your own goals for sessions to create change in the areas of your life you'd like to be different. This type of approach tends to help client's empowered to find the answers within themselves, with me as their guide.

How does Psychodynamic Psychotherapy differ from other kinds of therapy? Otherwise known as Insight Therapy, we will explore the different ways that your mind (conscious, pre-conscious, unconscious) is thinking, and causing you to feel, and therefore behave (inside and outside the self), and how / why that may be problematic for you. We may look at early developmental stages and struggles, and how they may have formed patterns in you life. We will look at how your experiences have shaped your values, wants, needs, and boundaries (weak or rigid). We will explore your pain, but also your hopes and dreams, and help you to learn new skills, identify goals and take the steps to achieve them!

Sally Palaian, Ph.D

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Utica

I have been in practice for over 25 years helping people to change — to discover who they are inside, and stretch to fulfill more of their potential. I love helping my clients learn to live their own life and lifestyle, not someone else’s. By providing support as you untangle yourself within relationships, jobs, and a life that is no longer working, I can help you learn the skills needed to make positive changes.

Consider PsychoTherapy If... You feel an overwhelming and prolonged sense of helplessness and sadness, and your problems do not seem to get better despite your efforts and help from family and friends. You are finding it difficult to carry out everyday activities: for example, you are unable to concentrate on assignments at work, and your job performance is suffering as a result. You worry excessively, expect the worst or are constantly on edge. Your actions are harmful to yourself or to others: for instance, you are drinking too much alcohol, abusing drugs or becoming overly argumentative and aggressive You are having difficulty in your marriage or relationship with others

Many compare our emotions and/or history to an onion that needs to be peeled away layer by layer. There's some merit to that, and both involve tears at times. Fortunately, for people who delve in to gain a deeper understanding of how they've gotten to where they are, eventually the tears fade away and the new understanding and insights lead to a more satisfying life.

Psychotherapist

Susan Gross, PsyD, LP

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Interventionist

Within driving distance of Utica

My approach to psychotherapy is integrative and innovative. As a humanistic psychologist, I use evidence-based treatment to offer what I needed most when I was struggling with my son's addiction and suicide . . . compassionate, non-judgmental support and strategies. I am skilled in crisis intervention and work with high-risk/high-conflict individuals and families. I refer to a vast network of addiction and psychiatric treatment facilities throughout the U.S. I am often the last hope when other approaches have failed.

Psychotherapist

Michael Govan, MA, LLP, LPC, LSGC, EMDR II

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Utica

Psychotherapy is just a fancy word for the process of healing that goes on in a Counseling office. When clients come to my office, I show hospitality and offer something to drink. We have soft music playing and just begin to talk about the areas of interest that have brought them in. From that first session, I determine what is wrong and what needs to happen in order to facilitate the change my clients are hoping for. As a matter of fact, I write out two goals for each client from what they've talked about, each with 3 or 4 objectives to reach those goals! I guide you and hold you accountable as needed until you reach these goals. Come on in and let me help you do the same!!!

Psychotherapist

Thomas Bruno, LLP

Specialist in Clinical Pyschology

Within driving distance of Utica

My approach is eclectic, taking what is effective from various approaches of psychology to help the client to heal. My approah is candid and direct which often helps cutting through dysfunction. Dysfunction stops the flow of love between individuals; to be functional again means restoring a relationship back to what it's main purpose was in the first place - to love, support and to to embrace so growth can occur. Therapy doesn't begin until an individual takes responsibility for what they may be doing that is unhealthy without blaming shifting. Discovering what is co-dependency may also be an excellent tool. I also help client to learn about Old Brain/ New Brain concepts.

Thomas Cliff, JD, LMSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung wrote, "The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are." This might not be the same as becoming, for example, the one our parents expect us to be. To build a life on the expectations of others is to play a role. We can try so hard to play it well that we neglect caring for ourselves. Indeed, we may take pride in always thinking of others, never of ourselves. At some point we may realize that this is not working out, but alternatives are not clear. Life feels burdensome. Working with clients in therapy, I help to identify and embrace personal strengths. Doing so sets a strong foundation for choices that reflect authentic values.

Psychotherapist

Joe Kort, Ph.D., MSW

Licensed Social Worker

Within driving distance of Utica

We have several approaches to psychotherapy here at the center. We are humanistic in that there is not a cookie cutter approach in working with people. What works for some may not work for others. We tailor your work to your personality and your history. People often say they don't want to focus on the past because it is over and there is nothing that can be done about it. However, if you are recycling your past in the present and doing what we call, "returning to scene of the original crime" in the present, then you are already stuck in the past. Our work with you is to understand what you are recycling so that you can leave the past behind and stop it from interfering with your life.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Utica, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Utica may have flexibility or sliding scales
