Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Patrick Madden "Q:  Is counseling/psychotherapy effective?

A:  Yes, hundreds of studies conducted over the last several decades show that psychotherapy is generally effective. However, positive outcomes in counseling and psychotherapy depend on the "goodness of fit" between the client(s) and the helping professional. One aspect of this includes the fit  between the client's unique challenges and the experience, background, and training of the service provider. Another aspect of "fit" may be referred to as interpersonal "chemistry". That is, the client has to feel comfortable and confident with the helping professional. When a solid "therapeutic bond" or "therapeutic alliance" is formed good things happen!

At the onset I spend a great deal of time helping potential clients who have been referred to me determine whether or not there is a good "fit" between us. In addition, we collaborate on establishing mutually agreed upon outcomes (or goals), and I continually solicit feedback from my clients to be sure that they are experience positive progress (Client-Directed, Outcome-Informed Therapy)."
