Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
• Help for individuals to heal depression, anxiety and trauma • Facilitate couples resolution of relationship distress • Improve family harmony, communication and functioning • Brief and solution-focused therapy (typically 6-8 sessions with possible monthly follow-up for a few months) • Living in the past is the source of sadness, living in the future is the source of anxiety and worry, experiencing now is the source of peace and joy • Build self-esteem, confidence and happiness • Strength-based focus on what is right not just what is wrong • Free your true self, authentic/true self is always a powerful person • Be able to have self-control and be self-determining • Express pain without being stuck in self-pity Utilizing both ancient principles and modern science, Mindfulness Psychotherapy and Positive Psychology help free trapped energy that is used to maintain habitual thoughts, postures, worries and regrets. We can learn to discover intelligence beyond thought, and use our minds as a powerful and effective tool while not being a slave to it. We can learn to control our emotions, which are thought driven, and cultivate deeply spiritual states of being such as love, joy and peace, which are not dependent on fluctuating emotion or the chatter of our minds. You can learn to increase awareness and use intent to focus attention on affirmation of life, ending fear based agreements.

If you are thinking about therapy, let me first commend you. I know it can be hard to think about sharing your problems with someone else. But something I have learned by working in this field and from my life is that problems are to be shared. We are all in this together. I try to take a balanced approach in therapy between acceptance and change.
