Good Will Hunting. I think Robin Williams character was spot on and responded to Will with compassion and empathy but wasn't afraid to help explore deeper more meaningful issues that were driving forces.
I try to approach life in a similar way that I approach treatment. I first try to balance myself, using more of a cognitive behavioral approach, so I can understand the problem, own it and then look for alternatives to find balance. I then believe in not running from my pain. I view my emotions as my souls fingerprint, and try to better understand myself by examining the emotions I feel. Also, I try to remain hopeful. that life will get better by owning the way I exist.
I have a large history of experiences in my own life that allow me to be able to relate to those coming to see me in a very human way. I like to collaborate with my clients and work as a team to help a person find peace and balance within themselves in the face of their pain an suffering.
