What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a commitment to and an investment in yourself. Therapy is a process in which you talk, openly and honestly, to a professional who has been extensively trained in human behavior and change. Through therapy, people come to understand their feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Through this exploration, people gain insight into the origins of their problems and can learn to develop better ways of dealing with these problems and interacting with others. Many people think that therapists will tell them what to do and how to do it. My approach is a little different. I help you see yourself more clearly and understand your feelings and needs at a deeper level. Only then can you make your own informed choices about where you want to go, when and how. Of course, I will offer suggestions that I think may improve your situation, but the ultimate decisions are always yours.
