Many people delay getting and staying engaged in the process of therapeutic change, and the kind of help that is necessary in reaching a greater sense of fulfillment. The sense of privacy about one's life has definitely changed and many people today are much more open and willing to share feelings, thoughts, and ideas in creative, public forums, ie. youtube, instagram, facebook, etc. Seeking help is actually easy, and accessible in more ways than ever before. Still, it is hard to know when someone's approach is rooted in the fundamentals of psychology that have remained constant over time.
Even when you can brush it off to some biological problem, there is something in every one of us that believes in self-determination, and that we can take charge of our own destinies. And we can. What it actually means to "get help" has changed as we learn to value interdependence over independence, cooperation and collaboration over competition. Core values have shifted. Still, we continue to face the same problems with greater awareness: relationship problems, family problems, effects of war, problems at work, finding meaning, and more.
Welcome to my private practice. There is much to understand in living a more rewarding and fulfilling life. There are many distractions, and ways to avoid pain and suffering, but avoidance can actually add to your suffering. Whether you are dealing with significant emotional distress, relationship problems, addictions, problems inherent in military family life, or re-integration after returning home from Iraq/Afghanistan, holistic counseling for the mind, body, & soul (or spirit) psychotherapy can make a difference in your life. If you have tried medication, and you do not feel that it did not enlighten you or produce the changes you wanted, other approaches may be more appropriate for you. We are co-creators in this dynamic world, and change within us usually occurs with influence and experience.
Some psychotherapy approaches assume that we are simply a collection of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to be managed, coped-with, or controlled. While there may be some utility to such, my own approach is holistic in that I consider the whole of your life experiences, and that you have the power to transform yourself with greater understanding, and connection to self and to others. My approach to psychotherapy draws upon the depth of knowledge from many areas of psychology, current understanding of the brain and the impact of our experiences on the mind and body. Depth psychotherapy, couples counseling, group therapy, and clinical hypnosis can help in ways that create permanent change over time. It is important to be prepared for the ongoing care you may need to address deeper, complex concerns.
Counseling considers the long-term impact of your life experiences, and the ancestral knowledge you carry with you, on the deeper parts of who you are.
