“Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
— C. G. Jung
What do you want to awaken within yourself?
Stephen has integrated an effective model of change for clients who have emotional or relationship blocks. These blocks can inhibit our truest expression of self, our ability to love and relate to others, the confidence we need to recognize our yearning and follow it through. Through individual psychotherapy, you can learn to recognize and better respond to your emotions, change unhealthy and limiting patterns of behavior, explore new interpersonal skills and improve your relationships.
Everyone can benefit from emotional maturity and balance. Psychotherapy provides an effective response to a wide range of difficulties that individuals regularly experience such as anxiety, depression, anger, and stress. Without addressing these difficulties, we may continue to re-experience them again and again.
Psychotherapy is also effective in treating addiction, gaining assistance with life and workplace transitions, addressing relationship abuse, and offering support during times of grief and loss.
“Psychotherapy works for the treatment of depression, and the benefits are substantial. In head-to-head comparisons, in which the short-term effects of psychotherapy and antidepressants are pitted against each other, psychotherapy works as well as medication. This is true regardless of how depressed the person is to begin with. Psychotherapy looks even better when its long-term effectiveness is assessed.”
