Psychotherapy is about you. It is about helping you to achieve your goals. Those may be to improve your relationships, enhance coping skills, improve school or job performance or many different things. Goals can range anywhere from increased understanding of yourself to resolving specific issues. I will utilize whichever approach will best suit your needs and your style in order to help you be your best self.

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.

Psychotherapy, or "talk therapy," is a psychosocial form of mental health treatment used to treat a variety of mental health disorders and concerns. Whether on an individual, family, or group level the primary aim of psychotherapy is to assist individuals with developing increased insight into their experiences and to encourage behavior change in an effort to resolve psychological, emotional, and behavioral difficulties and promote growth. Some forms of psychotherapy focus on thoughts, thoughts processes and beliefs, others focus more so on emotional responses and interpretation of experiences (e.g., the meaning), while others are most concerned with observable behavior.

Psychotherapy is the individualized treatment of psychological disturbances or issues. It may also be used for personal growth and self-discovery. At Lepage Associates we have therapists who specialize in common mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, relationships/couples, and general daily stress, and all are also skilled at self-growth.

Psychotherapy, the process of exploring, understanding and finding solutions for personal and situational challenges, is often very helpful for people facing a range of issues. In fact, psychotherapy has been shown to have similar effects on the brain as taking commonly prescribed medications for depression and anxiety! I have 14 years of clinical experience and have helped many adults and adolescents to work find relief from distress, deeper self-awareness and greater satisfaction in life. I strive to create a supportive and comfortable atmosphere within which people can explore sometimes difficult topics and find their way towards greater overall wellness.

I see my job as something that our Aunts used to do in families before we got so mobile in our culture. Those aunts close by who married into the family and had some objectivity and lots of tenderness. Maybe you didn't have one of those aunts, but if you're in the market for one now, you'll have to hire a counselor. I practice psychotherapy and think it is a valuable tool for anyone interested in better understanding themselves. I don't have the answers, but I'm educated and trained to help you clarify what you need to know for yourself. It is fun at times, interesting and difficult. It is painful and relieving as well as frustrating. My style is collaborative, warm and direct.

My approach to counseling is direct and informal. Clients often tell me they find it refreshing to have a counselor who is interactive and involved during sessions. My experience has been that counseling can be brief and effective when we work together to establish a plan to reach your goals. If you are currently in counseling, and you aren't sure how what you are doing will help you reach your goals, or you arent sure what your goals are, then you are unlikely to experience the counseling as helpful. Don't just make an appointment with the counselor who has a convenient appointment time; make an appointment with someone who is EXPERIENCED, DIRECT, DYNAMIC, and CERTAIN of how to help.
