What Sets My Work Apart

from other Therapy Practices

The following is a list of reasons why my Therapy Practice is different and, perhaps, more effective than other Therapy Practices:

  • Since I was an adolescent it has been my passion to help others, resulting in 40 plus years of experience and accumulated knowledge working with people of all ages in all kinds of therapeutic mental health and drug and alcohol treatment settings. 


  • Because of my need to work on my own issues with anxiety, anger/rage, depression, sadness, etc. in my earlier years, I am now better able to empathize with, have greater compassion for and can better understand what people with these issues are currently going through.


  • I can also empathize with those who have put a lot of time and money into their therapy but are left frustrated with a lack of substantial progress with the traditional talk therapy method.


  • I was in talk therapy for about 10 years in my twenties and thirties, and, despite all those years spent talking about my issues, I ended up with quite a bit of the same intensity of emotion as I walked in with 10 years prior. That's because talk therapy is not able to release the overwhelming emotions that actually shut down our cognitive abilities to find our answers to our problems.


  • Because of my unsatisfying experience with traditional talk therapy, I developed a rather incessant "thirst" to find and learn more effective ways that could effectively and safely release my overwhelming emotions so I could then easily find the "answers" I needed to resolve my issues. And now, I help countless others do the same.


  • And, clients often compliment me on my "grounded-ness" and empathetic nature, my abiltiy to engage and communicate in a relaxed and comfortable manner, creating a sense of safety, trust and ease in the therapeutic environment, while giving lots of feedback when it is called for to help clients deepen their understanding of themselves and their various circumstances.


As a result, I have become very proficient in helping  
others resolve their issues and RELEASE the 
negative thoughts and feelings causing their dysfunctional behaviors.


Yes, I said "RELEASE" because the therapies I use not only release the symptoms of your issues, that which causes the most physical and emotional stress, but theywill resolve the underlying issues as well, releasing your negative thoughts, negative feelings and dysfunctional behaviors ONCE AND FOR ALL!


I've even found ways to help those suffering from physical pain to get relieve and/or release from their physical pain without medication or more medication. And, I have developed a very unique weight loss process for those who are finding it difficult to lose weight and keep it off.


The Therapies I use are much more effective, 
quicker, easier and safer than Traditional Talk Therapy  


Although I believe in and include some of the core concepts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my Practice, I have realized for quite a while that, although it can be very good for some, it is not very effective for people who are overwhelmed with emotion. Emotional overwhelm can and does create conditions that actually shut down the logical, thinking part of the brain and make it very difficult, if not impossible at the time of overwhelm, to find the appropriate answers to solve our problems.


Traditional (talk) therapy also puts the emphasis on "managing", "coping with", "controlling" or "dealing with" the symptoms of stress, worry, anxiety, fear, depression, etc., verses getting to the "root" of the problems and RELEASING both the symptoms and problems ONCE AND FOR ALL.


Even medication, the most effective method of the traditional therapies, is only a temporary relief from the symptoms of these issues and, actually, “masks” the true problems causing the symptoms. Therefore, the best the traditional therapies are going to be able to do for you is to have you live with, manage, cope or try to control your symptoms and problems for the rest of your life.


And, some of the techniques used in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy actually re-traumatize clients around their issues and make it even harder for those clients to get better because they come to distrust therapy and therapists in general. A lot of the clients I get have had bad experiences with therapists “forcing” them to deal with their overwhelming feelings, not realizing that the client’s “resistance” has to do with their not feeling safe in that situation.


The new, improved, more progressive therapies I have found are safer, quicker, easier, and more thorough than current, established therapeutic methods. They cut through emotional overwhelm in a very safe and effective manner, and RELEASE not only the symptoms of your stress, worry, anxiety, fear, depression, anger, guilt, shame, sadness, etc., but they also RELEASE the “root” of the problem causing the symptoms, thus letting go of the problem, the negative feelings and the dysfunctional behaviors ONCE AND FOR ALL.


Not only have I helped countless clients with the amazing cutting-edge methods I use, I personally have benefitted greatly from these methods as well. I have come from hating myself to loving myself, from feeling non-deserving to deserving, from feeling not being good enough to being good enough unto myself, allowing for more peace, happiness and fulfillment in my life. I can do this for you as well.
