"You've got to know the music, and you've got to know the words. The "words" are evidence-based interventions, the application of psychological principles to pragmatic problems, and the pursuit of real change in your life. The music is the wisdom, the insight, the dream-work, the hunches and the flow of the therapeutic relationship. Without the music, the words are cold, clinical, and heartless - not likely to be effective since they don't rest on a solid foundation of deep understanding. But without the words, real-world change is more elusive - you can talk forever without really solving or changing things."

"Many people suffer under the weight of their sadness, fear, anger, and pain; others struggle to feel anything at all. Our self-esteem, relationships, or work can suffer as old cognitive, emotional, and behavioral paradigms are applied to new situations, often outside of our awareness. While it may seem daunting, exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences within the context of a safe therapeutic relationship can increase your access to, your awareness of, and your sense of control over your internal world. Through this process, you will find your strength, resilience, agency, and, ultimately, your freedom to more effectively shape your external world."

After over thirty years in the field, I believe that I have developed the ability to understand a situation quickly, and to communicate recommendations in an empathic and sensitive manner. I am able to work in brief psychotherapy, and wish to provide genuine help as quickly as possible."

Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in 20036 and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
