No feeling is Final.  

 -Ranier Maria Rilke

Therapy is a Relationship

Therapy should not be theory driven, but relationship driven. -Irvin D. Yalom

As a therapist, I am theoretically and clinically informed yet understand that it is the relationship and process we create that heals and perpetuates desired change in our lives. We are fellow travelers.

 

Therapy is a Process 

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination. -Carl Rogers

  As a therapist, I approach a client systemically as much as humanistically with genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathetic understanding.


Therapy requires a Self-Focus

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. -Carl Jung
As a therapist, I both validate and challenge clients to perpetuate desired change in their lives as much as self-actualization.


Therapy is Accepting our Past, Present and Possible Futures

One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful. -Freud

As a therapist, I utilize various psychotherapeutic modalities to include psychoanalysis if needs be.



Turn to J. Ellis Therapy & Associates for reliable counseling and psychotherapy. As people we experience much pain and hardship in mortality, yet can learn to overcome and find joy in the journey. The story you tell yourself matters. What you focus on grows. All men are mortal and our anxiety of death is real. We all have to cope through this life and need support through good and bad times. To share ones story is intimate. I appreciate my clients courage to share and interact around what besets them. Asking for help is a sign of resiliency.
