Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Browne "Psychotherapy is a process which is, for the most part, poorly understood in our culture. A central part of this theory is that people have an innate drive for mastery of their problems. The role of the therapist is to help the person, however the therapist can, understand limiting behaviors and have them become conscious, so they can be changed. The person can then permit himself to enjoy his life,and not be impeded by them."

Patient Comments (1)

After several years of therapy, he abruptly cancelled our sessions. He showed no consideration or respect for my feelings. After having 4-5 therapists over the years, he is the only one who has treated me this way. So sad.
