"I'm so blessed to have found you! Things got so overwhelming during and after my divorce. I was in a 'hole' and I want to thank you for pulling me out and helping me that rough time. To this day you have a special place on my shoulder whispering great words of encouragement. Thank you for all your help making me the strong person I am today."
"I just wanted to say how grateful and blessed I am to have had you as a therapist. I hope one day you'll know that you've made a profound impact on my life. How your words of encouragement, wisdom and knowledge changed a complete stranger...me. I am forever thankful. You will always be in my heart and in my prayers..."
"I am writing to you with great appreciation for helping me get through this. Speaking with you in my therapy helped me to not be 'alone'. It'll be a journey, which at the end, I can certainly help others and can refer others to you."
"I can't tell you how much you have helped and guided me thru recovery and then some. I owe you a ton. Now I really feel like I'm becoming a complete person...I wouldn't have become honest with myself without your help...I miss you, but know you will always be in my life one way or another."
"I want to thank you for always being on my side these past two years. Because of you I have learned to solve so many problems in a logical way. I appreciate our laughter together and even our tears. The fact that you taught me to see an entire situation has changed my thinking process. Thank you for the counseling and aiding me in solving my problems, working them out so that there was a better solution."
You've tried everything, but nothing is working, and you've run out of ideas and options. You know you're not mental, but you're wondering if talking to someone - a professional, a psychotherapist - if it would help.
You're tired of having memories that hold you back and block you from moving forward with your life. Thoughts are intruding, getting in the way of the things and people important to you. You wish it was possible to just forget something happened, so you could be or do what you desire. Or you're in a situation you are struggling with or need to make a decision but not know what to do.
You know you are smart, but can't understand why it's so hard to figure out. When you try to, your thoughts get on a hamster wheel to keep you from falling asleep or wake you up in the wee hours. Maybe you've even used alcohol or drugs to deal with it. If you only had the right tools and resources.
You want to feel better, and stop being overwhelmed - so many things are coming at you to be able to sort it out, figure out what to do first. It could be a minor adjustment, or it might be a larger shift in directions (life, career, or relationship) to a more fulfilling, less draining lifestyle. You believe you can do it, with help, support, an unbiased opinion and to not be judged for your ideas or attempts. An individualized approach, with a variety of techniques to choose and experiment with would be ideal.
We start with getting some clarity first, about yourself, and what you'd like to be different. That leads naturally into figuring out what you truly want and what life will be like when it happens. Then discovering the tools, methods and techniques to use. With help and support you can change: things, situations, yourself.
I've always wanted to be a therapist that does more than just talk. Through the years I've accumulated a lot of tools, methods and techniques, featuring Thought Field Therapy - and I'm sure we can find what will work for you. Call me, 808-327-1711, and we can talk about what's going on, what you are looking for, and how I can help.
