Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In Transpersonal Psychology, the process of achieving a Peak Experience is called Self-Actualization. Self-actualized people tend to focus on problems outside themselves; have a clear sense of what is true and false; are spontaneous and creative; and are not bound strictly by social conventions. To achieve these goals, sometimes certain aspects of an individual need to change. I believe that every person has a strong desire to realize his or her full potential, to reach their level of Self-Actualization. I use mindfulness techniques, dream work, vision process, and psycho-educational material to facilitate deeper change in individuals. I also use the Solution Focused Model – building on clients’ strength and empowering them. Everyone has the inner resources for growth and healing, and the purpose of therapy is to help remove the obstacles to achieving this.

Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
