Many that come to see me know what to do but for one reason or another cannot seem to do it. So in therapy we explore the blockages and the destructive patterns that keep them stuck and try to discuss why those have been needed. On occasion with those that like to read I may give homework assignments involving reading material relevant to the individual's situation or going through an interactive workbook. The material simply sheds additional "light" on the person's life and the various ways difficult situations can be handled. Certainly a key to any solid therapy is listening – not only with your ears but with your heart; listening to what is being said, the way it is being said, the reason for saying it and what is not being said. All these contribute to the understanding that the therapist gains in working with a person. I find that people are startled by some of the observations I'm able to make just from listening to them. That's one of the factors that makes therapy a worthwhile experience is the feedback, the insight and the objectivity the person can get from the therapist. By the time an individual calls me for a first appointment they may have been struggling as to whether they should call for weeks or even months. When they build up enough courage to dial my number I want to either answer my phone when they call or get back to them as quickly as I can after a message is left. I never take for granted the amount of time, courage, energy and money that my folks have given to their therapy sessions. All are treated with dignity, compassion and respect.Read more
