I encourage clients to tell their stories in an environment of safety and acceptance. I use the psychosocial perspective that encompasses a broad range of relevant information to achieve a holistic understanding of the client in the full context of his or her history and present life. I encourage emotional expression, recognition and development of strengths and skills, spiritual exploration, and mindful acceptance. Mandala art therapy and assessment, Neuro-Integration, and Emotional Freedom Technique greatly facilitate the process if the client chooses.

Anyone can talk. Finding someone who knows how to listen is becoming more of a challenge these days. My approach to counseling is based on a client-centered, solution focused practice that helps establish a comfortable and meaningful relationship in which you can be heard and understood and can receive feedback aimed at optimal health. If you find yourself struggling with the mundane problems of everyday life or a significant experience which compromises your mental and emotional health, talking to a therapist can be one of the most effective steps in achieving a sense of self-awareness and balance.

I am experienced in using a variety of therapy models to help my clients move forward in their lives. I use most often the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Solution Focused, and Narrative therapy models. These models that I use have been scientifically studied as being the most effective in the therapy setting. I help identify the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that keep people stuck where they are in life preventing them from enjoying life fully.

Psychotherapy is a process towards growth and change. I use several techniques to help my clients recognize what is happening inside of them, where it is stemming from, and find a new way of being in the world and with themselves. This process involves having new experiences which lead to exploration within a safe relationship. I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is as important as working on the problem. I help my clients develop skills to relate with themselves and others in a different, compassionate, and kind way.

If you feel blocked, thwarted, without options or direction, if you find yourself experiencing the same unhappiness again and again, then psychotherapy might be a good fit for you. My approach, in part, is for us to investigate whatever lies just outside your awareness: the beliefs, rules, & unconscious habits preventing you from creating the life you want. We will also identify rejected parts of your self so that you may befriend them and rediscover your sense of wholeness. The work can be rigorous, demanding, uncomfortable. Also warm, funny, and surprising. And often deeply rewarding. It would be my privilege to support, guide, and challenge you into the fullness of your potential.

I enjoy teaching couples and individuals about healthy ways to treat themselves so that they will learn to enjoy life to its fullness. It all starts in the mind. Psychotherapy involves talking out your problems to a professional, and speaking with a licensed counselor may help you overcome the obstacles that we face daily, as well as the emotional or psychological issues that may stand in our way.

Some of my clients turn out to be more intensive, long-tern individual psychotherapy cases. If you have never taken a long term approach to be involved in your own growth and healing you may benefit greatly from this type of counseling. Many people withdraw from their therapy too quickly and don't take the time or commitment to stay connected in the therapeutic relationship.
Jonathan Gerard, DMin

Psychotherapy is based on the idea that we repress events and thoughts in our lives which make us unhappy or uncomfortable and that these repressions poison our behavior. Talking, going back and airing these repressions, therefore, renders them harmless. If this were true, then therapists would have the happiest lives, lowest divorce rates, and most well adjusted children. They don't! I do not believe this works and do not do it. I also do not label my clients with codes or numbers--surely a dehumanizing act which makes therapy more difficult.
