Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Michael Karp "Humans have a legacy for joy, enthusiasm and creativity. We can: Cherish the company of others; Find fulfillment in work; and Discover ways to express our creativity. We can courageously adapt to the demands of life. Yet, people tend to develop habits which get in their way. I help my patients discover the nature of their self-defeating habits so that they can be cast aside. My sessions tend to be active and engaging in order to achieve rapid, deep and durable results."
