One of the most life altering actions when seeking to gain traction in the struggle to live a satisfying life is the choice to work with a therapist. It signaled a ground-breaking change in our approach to meeting the challenges we faced; demonstrating a shift that embraced the possibility of tapping into knowledge and support outside our own skull. Most of us have a better ability to see and understand the actions and motivation of others than our own. We all have personal blind spots. This is evident early in therapy, when one experiences striking progress as a result of new insights gained in therapy.

I will help you uncover what drives and motivates you in a manner that allows you to meaningfully connect to your areas of strength.

We will work together to set strengths-based goals, which will help you to make permanent the changes you want in your life.

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.

There are two main ways to have therapy, which are described below. The best approach to help you get the results you want may involve a combination of styles or techniques. 1. Open-ended Therapy Sessions: Some people work towards the solutions best by having a weekly appointment and sharing whatever is on their mind in an open-ended way. This facilitates awareness and personal growth. 2. Structured Therapy Sessions: In structured sessions, a clear plan is always in place and you will know exactly what is going to happen at every session. You might be guided to practice particular skills or review certain types of interactions. Both approaches are helpful. We can tailor for your needs.

My main goal as a therapist is to help people cope with and manage the thoughts, feelings and self defeating behaviors that have lead to their current problems. I do this in two ways. First, I help clients develop strategies to decrease negative thoughts so that they can focus on what they want to do, instead of focusing on thoughts that hinder them.. Secondly, I help clients explore underlying issues that may be contributing to their current problems. Clients benefit from this process by having all the information they need to make better informed decisions about life goals. It has been wonderful to see my clients make changes that have lead to more satisfactions and joy in their lives.

When clients graduate from treatment, they take with them a box full of "tools", such as effective anger management techniques, avoiding confrontations that lead to negative expressions of anger, resolving conflict peacefully and quietly, making the right decisions in every aspect of life, and perseverance to always build skills against life's problems and apply them consistently.

The courageous, caring, trusting, and mentoring relationship between therapist and client can guide and inspire a person to overcome and achieve. I deeply enjoy participating in the growth of my clients, helping them get free of the inaccurate messages, patterns, and beliefs of the past, and reclaim themselves and their hope for the future. In therapy, clients can see positive results in all areas of life: relationships, work, happiness, family.

Are you feeling alone and misunderstood? Are you experiencing conflicts that don't seem to be manageable? Are you feeling as if you aren't living up to your true potential? These are the questions that so many people ask and these are some of the very reasons why Psychotherapy is a useful tool for getting yourself back on track. I offer a supportive atmosphere where we can explore all of these questions and attempt to put them into a healthier perspective. Through our dynamic work together we will try to answer these questions and get you back to the person that you once knew and maybe, just maybe a chance to meet the person that you always hoped to become.

Each client who comes into my room brings with them their own history; their own story. Respect is paramount. Empathy is paramount. The experience of coming into therapy for the first time, can be a daunting one. "Will he help?" "Will he get me?" "Will I be judged?" These are just a few of many that can swirl around in a client's mind. I have been doing this for quite a while. I have had a successful practice over the years, primarily because I show respect, I can put myself in the other's shoes, I am an active listener and an active participant. I ask questions, I support, I challenge in a supportive manner, I offer guidance when needed. You are not alone in this.

Are you struggling with a problem in your work or love life? Or are you suffering from emotional symptoms that leave you frustrated, alone, or fearful of the future? Whether you have been in therapy for years or never before, talk therapy with Dr. Swensen could be the perfect medicine. While I work on your entire personality, not just the symptom(s) you come to therapy with, it is a process of learning to say all of your thoughts and feelings, including ones that are embarrassing or leave you feeling shameful. Psychotherapy with me will offer you the chance to have the life you truly want, in love, work, and play.
