People seek out psychotherapy because they are in pain. For some it's the inability to meet goals, for others negative emotions make functioning on the simplest level extremely difficult. As a therapist my first order of business is to create a safe, empathic and non-judgmental environment where my clients, for maybe the first time in their lives, share their inner experiences of life. I believe that change happens through the insights gained in exploring those experiences and understanding how we've become the people we are today. In this process I see the therapist as a kind of guide who helps to untangle the "knots" of emotional suffering.

My approaches to psychotherapy are psychodynamic and EMDR. In psychodynamic psychotherapy, we look at what your early experience can teach you about your personality, relationship patterns and current stressful situations. We also use our relationship as a source of information and support. By applying the self-awareness you gain in our work together you gain greater self-confidence, improved relationships and careers and richer, more satisfying lives. With EMDR you tap directly into the brain's natural capacity to process trauma and release toxic mental states. The result is calmer states of mind, greater self-confidence and better self-efficacy.

I define psychotherapy as the technique, or combinations of techniques, used by a mental health professional to help a person overcome emotional pain. Research published by the American Psychological Association states that there is, statistically speaking, not much difference in success rates between one technique versus another. There are, however, a number of qualities and treatment standards which the best psychotherapist share. These psychotherapists are proven to be better than others. Refer to my website to access the article QUALITIES AND ACTIONS OF EFFECTIVE THERAPISTS.

Psychotherapy, therapy, and counseling are general terms that describe a way of talking about issues with a mental health professional. I will help you reach your goal, whether it is to explore relationships to better understand yourself and others; to end self-destructive habits and identify and change behaviors or thoughts that adversely effect your life; to heal family conflicts and get past the pain and anger and let it go; or to find better ways to cope with and solve problems -- I will be there with you to walk the path to a richer and more satisfying life.

Psychotherapy When people enter therapy they want to make changes and I take that striving very seriously. My approach depends on the patient with whom I am working, but a belief I always hold is that people heal and change when they cultivate a healthy internal voice that can guide them through the challenges of their past, present, and future. Some very personal things are talked about in therapy and I feel it is important that a patient feel safe to talk about such things. Therefore, a patient should talk about personal material only when they decide they are ready and that patient and therapist should work together to make the space safe for such conversations.

Getting into psychotherapy is a courageous act. Most people would solve their problems themselves if they could, but life can be complicated and daunting. It takes courage to find someone you can really trust -- someone with a sharp mind and compassionate heart who will treat you with respect, who will listen carefully and objectively. I am honored to invite clients into the healing process of psychotherapy. There will be lots of listening, lots of questions to make you think and, perhaps, to see your life from a new angle, and a suggestion or two of new options that you might not have considered.

I've been doing this over a quarter century and it always comes down to this: When you identify - and feel - what happens inside you, what happens between you and others, and what happened that you're not fully remembering or respecting, you feel better and function better. I've seen this happen across all types of people, all ages, and all kinds of problems that bring them into treatment. Of course, along the way I can help you with whatever person, boss, spouse, decision, or personality quirk (yours or theirs) that's irking you, but the real change and the real excitement come from that kind of discovery. Try it and see.

Sometimes, life means change. I can help you manage that change so that it doesn't manage you. If you're in transition, or stuck in a rut, call me. I can help you find and build a satisfying relationship by giving you the down-to-earth practical skills you need to successfully meet, date, and keep a mate. People have told me I’m good at helping them gain insight into the opposite sex; and also at helping them quickly assess a new date’s compatibility. I also can show you how to improve your primary long-term relationship -- the one with yourself.

Dr. Vaughan believes that psychotherapy can benefit anyone. Clients pursue therapy for a wide variety of reasons. Some simply want an objective, non-judgmental, and trustworthy source of support and feedback, while others seek tools for working through crises. Therapy with Dr. Vaughan is engaging and active. The particular goals of psychotherapy are chosen by the client. Some examples of goals include personal growth and self-actualization, increased life satisfaction, improved relationships, greater self-confidence, effective stress management, and reduced anxiety and depression. Dr. Vaughan emphasizes that no problem is too big or small, common or rare, to be addressed in therapy.

Psychotherapy is a blanket term. The way I see it, it's two people in a room working to make your life easier, and better. Each client has different personalities, emotional patterns, histories, goals and desires, and so your therapy will be individualized, according to your needs and other psychological and personality factors, to make the process work for you. I draw on a variety of schools and techniques.
