Psychotherapy can be challenging, but it is a rewarding process. Most people come in to discuss the problems in their lives. They often forget about what is going well, and what are their natural talents and abilities. I train and supervise psychologists at area hospitals. Because of this I am sensitive to ethical concerns: honesty, integrity and practicality. I strive to create a very kind and safe atmosphere where personal exploration is possible. Psychotherapy should be collaborative. I am vocal and active and give my clients ongoing feedback, inquiry and support.

Treatment Approach

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Compassion Focus Therapy
  • Contemplative Psychotherapy
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Interpersonal

  • Relational Psychotherapy
Approach Description: We will get to know each other and establish a platform of trust so that you can begin to feel comfortable with yourself. We will discuss how gentleness, honesty and awareness can allow previously denied or exiled parts of yourself have voice. This requires a patience and a self compassion which is critical to establishing a love for yourself. Through gentle testing and exercises we can help you reclaim your natural spontaneity and aliveness.

Wayne Ayers Practice Description
Psychotherapy helps you reclaim yourself. We will augment your natural coping skills to help you develop a new freedom and a new happiness at work and in your relationships...in approaching your life. Everyone is different, no one approach fits all. How we proceed is determined by you and your needs. Your family, culture, sexual orientation and ethnicity are all important. I use an integrative approach which combines insight oriented, mindfulness, cognitive, behavioral and humanistic approaches.
