Who Seeks Therapy?
A wide variety of people seek therapy.
What they have in common is a concern for how they are handling
issues such as:
- Work Problems
- Stressful Events
- Difficulty in Relationships
- Obsessive Thoughts
- Compulsive Behaviors
- Anger, Fear, Embarrassment and Hurt
Therapy is an opportunity to learn how to change your
approach to achieve a positive outcome. This may involve
changing situations or changing your thoughts, feelings, or
behaviors in the situation. What's important is the desire to
have things work better.
What is Therapy?
I offer a personalized approach that takes into account you
as a unique person with your own history and current
circumstances. This approach is a process of exploration to determine what thoughts
you are having, what feelings are generated by those thoughts,
and what behaviors come from those feelings. Often therapy is
about learning to see things from a different perspective.
Knowledge of the way you see things and how it affects what you
do is highly valuable. Therapy requires a commitment by both
client and therapist to define and achieve the desired goals.
Each individual and each relationship is unique and therefore
requires a personalized approach to address the difficulties,
problems, or issues that are causing concerns.
What Can I Expect From Therapy?
It is important that your relationship with a therapist feels
safe and promotes your ability to talk freely and openly about
your thoughts and feelings. In therapy, the first step is
gathering information about the present problem. This includes
what is happening, who is involved, and how it is affecting you.
The next step is to establish goals that relate to the concerns
and your difficulties in dealing with those concerns. Since you
are a unique individual, the approach to therapy will be unique
to you. The emphasis, however, will be on implementing changes
to reach your goals. Many people have experienced,
calmness, clarity and confidence as a result of the therapy
