I work with people to help them be the best version of their Self. Whether we are working on anxiety, depression, relationship problems, addiction, spiritual issues, grief or trauma, etc, We usually begin with the initial phase of getting through the issue that got them through the door of my office. After that we work on the underlying issues that contributed to the struggles they are having. I focus on developing the skills of emotional management so that a person's emotions are coloring their life rather than running their life. We look at habitual patterns of interpreting their circumstances and familiar bodily states that are keeping them stuck. We concentrate on getting control of the things they can control and letting go of those they cannot control. We also address the habits of their internal critic and the ways they respond to those judgements with the goal of developing a peaceful life that is resilient to the difficulties that may come in the future.

Paul Sather Practice Description
I see adolescents and adults for individual psychotherapy. I tend to work best with people that are more naturally self-reflective, intelligent and open. One of my core beliefs is that there is more than one reason for everything that happens in a person's life. People like to focus on the main reason for their struggles. Unfortunately this focus often leaves the other reasons behind their problems unexamined and thereby unaddressed. This would be fine except the other reasons for difficulties are often more powerful than a person thinks and are often what is keeping someone stuck in their struggles. I encourage people to take a comprehensive view of their life and the way their Self has been operating in their life in order to see the areas that may have been neglected and to empower change in the areas they can control.
