Les Barbanell, EdD, DAPA, NaPsyA, CGP, Psychologist in Fort Lee
I help clients to overcome the obstacles that are interfering with their quality of life using an active, interpersonal, humanistic approach. Our professional relationship is central to a successful outcome and includes the development of mutual trust, open-ness and genuineness. The work effort in sessions is collaborative rather than "authoritarian." My range of interventions is flexible and suited to the needs of clients.
The client's debilitating conflicts and emotional impasses are diminished by increasing self-awareness and the capacity to communicate with others on an emotional level. Early childhood influences and their impact on the present are discussed without blaming parents. Similarly, couples learn to interact without blaming each other.
In an effort to strengthen our "connection" I will on occasion share a personal experience when the experience is related to the client's narrative.
