This is a good time for psychology and psychotherapy. Our understanding of how the mind, body, thoughts and emotions work has dramatically increased over time. Through continuing research we have been determining what past and present therapeutic techniques work best, as well as creating new methods. Neuropsychology, behavioral psychology and experimental psychology are all contributing ideas as to how we can go beyond our habitual repetition of thoughts and behaviors to better address our challenges and find ways of being that allow more choice, more growth and more happiness. This is true for both our experience of ourselves and how we relate to others and the world.
Research into Practice
As a research scientist, I am involved in conducting research and furthering possiblilities for new psychotherapeutic techniques. I am also always increasing my knowledge of current research into the mind and the mind-body relationship. As a therapist I bring the lessons learned through current research into my practice. I attend trainings on new ideas in neuropsychology, individual and couples therapeutic practices and I conduct study and supervision groups with other therapists to incorporate what we are learning into specific work with clients. I consider my growth in knowledge and understanding essential to what I have to provide as a therapist.
A testimonial from a client:
