Dr. Lester's Care Philosophy

I take a very practical approach. At first, we will identify what is missing in your life. Typically, we experience distress because our basic human needs are not being met. Next... Once we identify your unmet needs, we will discuss ways that you might make changes and better meet your needs. Finally... Once we have identified a plan of action, I help you follow through with the intervention. Taking action is the most difficult step. We typically struggle with being consistent. It can take up to 90 days of constant change before it becomes a new habit. We will keep going to the drawing board until we are successful. Again... In life, we are constantly facing new challenges and we may feel stuck again and we may need to revisit this process again from time to time.
