ROGERS FAMILY & SELF-CENTERED THERAPIES TM
Where it's all about You, YourSelf & Why. From your point of you.
WHAT IS SUCCESS?
"Loneliness does not come from having no people about one,
but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself,
or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”
If (and I know this to be true for me) success is liking your Self, liking what you do, and liking how you do it). then I have to practice what I preach in my private practice:." eing mySelf and not a clinical cardboard cut out has enabled me to work with amazing people who have unearthed themSelves and gained true appreciation of that Self with authentic and organic consistently.
WHO ARE YOU, REALLY?
“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
Therapy can and I subscribe to it being about asking your Self: "Who am I, REALLY? Then determining what meaning purpose YOU have and what you will do with this gift called life? How? It is through relationship. We need people who are going to reopen our wounds. That’s the only way we heal them. We can’t heal by avoiding. We heal by going through, not 'getting over it.' but by reopening, by learning, by feeling the pain and transforming it with the people who will stand by us as we do. Because if we don't transform our suffering, we will transmit it.
IT’S FINALLY ALL ABOUT YOU
“The greatest tragedy of the family is the unlived lives of the parents.”
You don’t have to be hopeful about the future. It’s enough just to be curious about what is coming. The relationship I hope to establish with you is one in which we both gain insight into how you work best. It's a relationship that is professional and intimate. Authentic and empathic. Respectful of boundaries while prioritizing the need for a safe space where you can feel safe enough to really be your Self. To be able to say anything that comes to mind, and feel as though no subject is too taboo or off limits including any feelings about me that come up for you.
Psychotherapy is not a procedure performed upon one person by another.
It is a dialogue between personal universes, and it transforms both. (George Atwood)
