"I work with people who want to reach their full potential at work, in relationships, and/or creative pursuits but find themselves instead drained by worry, paralyzed by fear or perfectionism, and often unable to even feel safe in their own bodies. Though we sometimes get overwhelmed by life's struggles, I deeply believe in each person’s innate wisdom and ability to heal and grow. During individual sessions I will help you access your inner healing capacities. And together we will work to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns, and false beliefs at the root of these, that are keeping you stuck and suffering. "

"Mike Lubofsky, J.D., M.A., APCC. Grounding in Uncertain Times. We are all seeking some sort of reliable refuge. Unfortunately, most of us have internalized the notion that refuge is to be found in external phenomena – other people, places and things. While such phenomena can be pleasing, reality dictates that these phenomena are inherently impermanent and unsatisfactory. In addition, most of us have internalized our likes and dislikes in a way that have given rise to a crystallized belief in the existence of one’s self, the defense and protection of which has come to dictate much of our decision-making through adulthood.

"As a depth psychotherapist, one of the things I do is help my clients know their unknown issues. I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits."

Obstacles take any forms: trauma in the body, inauthentic identities, existential fears, beliefs indoctrinated but in conflict with one's essential values, or anxiety that something is wrong with oneself. The result can be alienation, grief, substance use issues, depression, anxiety, difficulty connecting, or incapacity to speak or create from the heart.

A recent transition, relationship or career challenge may be making it clear that some things are not working. You may also notice that you end up playing a familiar role in your relationships and this creates a "stuck" feeling. At times you feel overwhelmed with worry, pressure or confusion and may be resorting to addictive patterns or substances in order to cope. You don't want to feel "lacking," anxious or stressed out.
