People often ask me, "What is
the purpose of therapy?" I believe there are a few answers to that
To me, there are no failures in life, only slowly ripening
successes. You can create your new balanced, peaceful, prosperous and
productive life. During your
treatment process, you will ultimately turn your defeats into victories and
your scars into stars. You will feel more peaceful and useful in your
life. Your creativity will flow.
My approach includes Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT),
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, Jungian
Psychology, plus other evidence based methods. We also work with an Army of
Angels. With intuitive, quality
listening and Divine Intervention we support your transformation process; you
go from "I'm Impossible" to "I AM POSSIBLE!"
One of Wessan's clinical heros...
Psychiatrist, Survivor of Nazi death camps
"I never would have made it if I could not have laughed. It lifted me momentarily out of this horrible situation just enough to make it livable."
~ Viktor E. Frankl, MD
In my DBT Skills Group (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), when we work on the "Distress Tolerance" module I blend in best practices from my therapeutic laughter training.
I model my therapeutic laughter practice upon the shoulders and in the spirit of Dr. Viktor Frankl. I have studied and worked with his logotherapy protocol for years, using Dr. Frankl's Paradoxical Intention, Laughter Therapy and other "counter intuitive" methods to support you in your transformation process.
Dr. Frankl survived his imprisonment in Auschwitz by developing these powerful resilience tools and advanced cognitive behavioral "self talk" techniques to endure his ordeal. He shared his experience, strength and hope in his book, Man's Search for Meaning.
Learning to embrace the incongruities, absurdities and paradoxes of your life is the beginning of transcending them. Then you, too, will find yourself feeling more peaceful and useful, and ultimately much happier.
