Larry O'Connor's Care Philosophy

I work with individuals to live and relate authentically and giving consideration to their individual capabilities and intents. Too often we limit or live in isolation from ourselves, our beliefs, and zeal, or what we want from relationships. Too often the desire for change comes as a reaction to a dissatisfaction with our self or current circumstances, and can compel us to dismiss the exceptional qualities we already possess. Change isn't about dismissing, but accepting and acknowledging your aspirations, and intentionally actualizing these. My style is active, informal, and humorous. I don't fit people I work with into theories. I try to understand a person's circumstances and concerns by listening and responding in ways that clarify before offering suggestions or strategies. Clients often express feeling comfortable with me and that we are equals. I believe therapy offers solutions, improved self esteem, and realistic recognition of abilities.

Larry O'Connor says...

My areas of experience include: Relationships, Separation and Divorce, Depression and Anxiety, Identity and Life Direction, Transitions, Men's Issues, and Addiction.

Improving relationships involves recognizing how our prior experiences influences our current relationships. Both individuals co-create the dynamic of their relationship. The tricky part though is understanding  how, rather than who's right or wrong.

In healthy relationships individuals are able to openly communicate concerns, without reprimand, or fearing their partner personalizing what they've said. When individuals anticipate reprimand or dismissal, conflicts remain un-resolved, so when new ones arise, not having constructive experience repairing conflicts only leads to more conflict. I encourage couples to develop Differentiation: in which individuality can mutually exist with commitment. The opposite is Enmeshment, becoming entangled by giving up one's identity to avoid repercussions--and later resenting it.
