In order to overcome the problems from which the person suffers, it is necessary to have a full understanding of those problems, how they are experienced, their effect on the person's life, their roots, and unconscious principles that dominated the behavior. In the process, the patient step by step builds new understandings, perceptions, and outlook of the self and life in general. Every session strives to put an additional piece of the puzzle together in understanding the issue. The end of the treatment is when all of the pieces of the puzzle have been put together. Then, the person feels whole and free from the condition.
My Role As A Therapist: After 35 years of experience in the field, I would say that a person who makes the first contact and asks to be in therapy actually is ready for a change, ready to improve his or her well-being and better his or her life. My role as a therapist is to use professional tools to facilitate the change, to change old sets of perceptions about the self and others with new sets of perceptions. Every person has a subjective world of experiences and therefore, every person needs specific, particular tools to promote the change. Treatment is a challenging journey of changes in perceptions of the internal world and the outer world, the journey in which there is a process toward a healthier and better life.
Various conditions that lead to emotional suffering can be overcome by fully understanding the condition’s roots.
The treatment process has a beginning, middle and end where both the patient and I team up to work through the process and witness the process of change.
Uncovering and realizing the unconscious principles that were experienced and dominated the behavior. These discoveries contribute to the healing process. Dream analysis is part of this process and an extremely valuable asset to uncovering the unconscious.
Constant empathy and clarification of the subjective world of experiences that lead to the emotional suffering is embedded within the entire treatment process.
The ultimate goal of my treatment of any condition is to achieve a sense of wholeness, sense of existence, and being connected to the self and actualizing it to its fullest potential.
