Hello there! Welcome to Grow Therapy. You may call me Paul. Do you find it difficult to connect with or find a therapist that places you first? I place a huge emphasis on listening to you while using a person-centered approach. I empower you to be able to identify what it is that is troubling you in a complex world of thoughts and emotions. We'll use a holistic model to integrate mind, body, and spirit. This encourages you to discover the skills or strategies that help you to be the best you can be. I help people learn to identify the root of their issue(s). This not only addresses the symptoms but improves healing at the core of the problem thereby promoting lasting change. I truly believe in a person's ability to grow and change as you travel down your pathway to mental health and well-being. Learning to live in the present allows us to experience healing and wellness in the here and now. Whether you're dealing with complex relationship issues that seem hopeless and overwhelming or cycles of anxiety and depression, I'm here to help. I strive to create a safe and comfortable space where healing and growth are encouraged. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with trust, empathy and compassion while using evidence-based techniques so you can overcome barriers and obstacles that have been holding you back. I am honored to work with you and wish you all the best on your journey.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

You can expect me to learn as much as I can about you and your situation in our first session. Building rapport is critical in creating a healthy therapeutic relationship. Moving forward, I use an integrated approach that you may find the most successful in achieving your goals and objectives. I always open our sessions by checking on how you're doing since our last session and what you desire to work on in today's visit. I like to make sure the time devoted to our sessions is the most productive it can be. I verify this by asking you "How do you think we're doing"?

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I'm primarily an existential counselor but use the treatment method(s) that you respond to the best. I am an eclectic counselor pulling from many different modalities and theories. I treat each person as a unique individual. I do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. I use my gifts and skills to unpack layer by layer what is troubling you. Always keeping in mind that it is your definition of success that we are working towards.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I value a positive holistic approach to therapy. I think balance in life is very important and starts with having a good sense of self-esteem and attention given to good self-care. I highly value the therapeutic relationship and work hard to promote confidence and trust. I have over 12 years of experience working with a wide variety of mental health disorders. By building rapport and working at you're own pace, I have a high level of confidence in your ability to improve and/or recover from what's troubling you.
