Introduction to Therapy
Arlene’s therapeutic approach is to guide
you, as an individual, couple, or family, to identify emotional and
behavior patterns that no longer empower or aid your relationships.
She will focus on your strengths rather than assigning blame, and
believes that how you understand, interpret and communicate life,
significantly influences your relationships with others.
The exploration of past as well as existing relationships offers
a greater understanding of how your life is being influenced. Therefore,
family of origin can often be a natural place to start therapy.
Once the existing patterns are understood, new skills can then
be introduced and possibilities for healthier behavior are explored
and developed. As these new options become familiar and comfortable,
you will experience a renewed sense of empowerment and peace in
your life. You will be better able to evaluate situations, achieve
your potential and enjoy your life goals.
