Clinical Mission Statement for
Individual, Family and Group Therapy


People often ask me, "What is the purpose of therapy?" I believe there are a few answers to that question.

First, you come to therapy to defrost grief, unexpressed rage and other negative feelings, e.g. traumas, losses, betrayals. You also  learn to re-parent yourself. 

Second, you come to have a better transition in your work or love life, or to improve your performance and personal relations.

Finally, you get to share your dreams and goals in a safe environment, with no judgment, and to produce amazing action plans to manifest your best life ever.

To me, there are no failures in life, only slowly ripening successes. You can create your new balanced, peaceful, prosperous and productive life.  During your treatment process, you will ultimately turn your defeats into victories and your scars into stars. You will feel more peaceful and useful in your life.  Your creativity will flow.

My approach includes Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, Jungian Psychology, plus other evidence based methods. We also work with an Army of Angels.  With intuitive, quality listening and Divine Intervention we support your transformation process; you go from "I'm Impossible" to "I AM POSSIBLE!"

May you shine on and  be a blessing!

Viktor E. Frankl, MD (1905 - 1997)

Neurologist, Psychiatrist, Survivor of Nazi death camps

"I never would have made it if I could not have laughed. It lifted me momentarily out of this horrible situation just enough to make it livable."

~ Viktor E. Frankl, MD

 

 

In my DBT Skills Group (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), when we work on the "Distress Tolerance" module I blend in best practices from my therapeutic laughter training.

 

I model my therapeutic laughter practice upon the shoulders and in the spirit of Dr. Viktor Frankl.  I have studied and worked with his logotherapy protocol for years, using Dr. Frankl's Paradoxical Intention, Laughter Therapy and other "counter intuitive" methods to support you in your transformation process.

 

Dr. Frankl survived his imprisonment in Auschwitz by developing these powerful resilience tools and advanced cognitive behavioral "self talk" techniques to endure his ordeal.  He  shared his experience, strength and hope in his book, Man's Search for Meaning.

 

Learning to embrace the incongruities, absurdities and paradoxes of your life is the beginning of transcending them. Then you, too, will find yourself  feeling more peaceful and useful, and ultimately much happier.
