Learn about Leslie Terner
I understand that people most often come to therapy because they are hurting emotionally. I believe that we all think the way we do and behave the way we do for very valid reasons. We all get into habits of thinking and behaving in ways that can often be self-defeating and self-destructive. I help my clients gain insight into why they have developed these habits in the first place. If you can understand yourself better as to why you think and behave the way you do, then you can have more compassion for yourself and have patience with yourself to put in the energy to learn more effective ways of coping and behaving. We explore ways of altering these patterns so that you can move on and create a more fulfilling life for yourself. Therefore, you can live more authentically.
