Quotes For Good Living

"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens." – Lewis L. Dunnington

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:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • 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 process.
