Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Gestalt therapy is an interactive, collaborative process therapy that is effective in the treatment of a wide range of issues from normal challenges of living to more severe cognitive/emotional problems. Individuals and couples are seen as inherently capable of choosing what is best for them physically, emotionally and cognitively within their cultural/environmental context.

Couples therapy: Couples relationship models are often based on their original family or myths about intimacy from various media. Either we copy the model or we do exactly the opposite. With the divorce rate above 60% for first marriages (even higher for subsequent) clearly, these models don’t work well. While relationships are difficult and not for the faint of heart, they are one of the major experiences that make life meaningful. Dealing with the basic human dilemma of how to be connected to another and maintain a self is the major work of couples therapy.
