When life’s challenges make you say “Enough already,” or even “Too much,” skillful and encouraging psychotherapy can be very helpful. All of us have these times in our lives.
Does psychotherapy work? Yes. A substantial body of high-quality,peer-reviewed research clearly and definitely points to psychotherapy succeeding in its aims of reducing suffering, improving relationships, and helping people to have lives that work better.
What Works in Therapy?
My approach to psychotherapy is very practical: over 25 years I’ve seen that people have an intrinsic well of healing and resiliency within them. This source of becoming whole is unstoppable in its positive effect when people feel encouraged. The sky is the limit.
I began working with people using the phone about 15 years ago, and after the experience of thousands of sessions I am still frequently amazed at the effectiveness of it: phone therapy is absolutely as powerful as face-to-face therapy.
I have Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees in psychology as well as other post-graduate training in clinical psychology. My professional life the last 25 years has been working with people as a therapist, coach, teacher and bodyworker.
From this experience, and my personal work of deepening and expansion over four decades comes the aliveness and genuine contact I bring to my work with clients. When you feel listened to in a real way, and feel authentically heard and understood, a healing process begins that is spontaneous and easeful.
