Bruce Hammer, PhD, Psychologist in Syosset
I believe that therapy should help you to understand the forces that made you who you are, empower you to escape the patterns of interaction and negative feelings that seem inescapable, help you find your voice and discover more effective ways to navigate life's challenges. Therapy is worth something if in the end, it helps you to change the way you operate or feel differently about yourself. That's why I will encourage you to turn what we learn about you into alternate ways of interacting and to encourage you to practice these in the situations you face.
In my work with relationships - including business partnerships - I see my role as facilitating effective communication - learning to listen and to say what you feel in a way that your partner can digest. You and your partner decide if that leads to being together, apart, or something in between.
I think of my style as an active, engaged participant. Because research shows that the therapist-patient relationship is a critical outcome factor, I suggest you pick a therapist whose style you sense is what you are looking for, someone who will help you get where you want to be.
