After making the difficult choice to seek therapy for a challenge you are experiencing in life, it can be hard to find a therapist that you find helpful. It has been shown in research that often just taking the first step in contacting a therapist is therapeutic by itself. I would be honored to help you as you explore solutions to the challenges you are experiencing. When you are ready to make that first step, contact me for an appointment or for answers to your questions regarding treatment. Below are my assumptions about families and family therapy, you may review them to understand how treatment will be like with me. Thank you for your interest.
My Assumptions About Family Therapy
- I believe that the family is the 'client.' All therapy and therapeutic efforts are driven to help the family change from its current unhelpful patterns to patterns of hope for everyone in the family.
- I believe that solutions for a family lie within the family itself. I will do my best to help families in the process of finding solutions, but the ultimate answers come from within you and your family.
- I believe that there is good in all people. All people go through life and encounter certain circumstances that cause the good in them to be hidden from view. I will work with you to find that good, so that you and others can see and act accordingly.
- Lastly, I believe that change only comes about through experience. Having a different interaction with me, than what you are use to, is essential to healing and solution finding. Albert Einstein put it perfect in this quote: "All knowledge is experience, everything else is just information."
