Our psychotherapists recognize that there are many way and means of practicing psychotherapy and that all of them that lead to recovery are good. Our thinking is in line with Deborah Luepnitz (2002) who stated, “If collapsing views into each other seems futile, disregarding one or another seems almost phobic.” Therefore, our psychotherapists draw upon multiple theoretical perspectives and interventions to help you achieve your goals.
We also believe that any and every psychotherapeutic technique should not be applied without a thorough understanding of the individual to whom the technique is applied. Therefore, your first few sessions with your psychotherapist will be evaluative. At the end of this evaluation process, you will be given feedback on how your psychotherapist views your situation, as well as a recommended intervention approach.
