Therapy Approaches & Modalities

 You are probably reading this page because you're thinking of taking the leap into therapy.

Maybe you're down or anxious; maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship. Or perhaps you just have a vague feeling that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead.

    Dr. Burrows and Dr. Aber are committed to helping their counseling clients reconnect with a sense of emotional health and purpose in life. Many people live with painful feelings and the frustration of being unable to alter their behavior for far too long. Effective psychotherapy instills self-understanding and promotes transformation by encouraging behavior change and the adoption of new attitudes and feelings. Making such changes in self-defeating behavior and in feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can yield life-altering results, and we will help you make those changes.

     Therapy and marriage counseling can, actually, be kind of enjoyable. There is something intellectually and spiritually satisfying about getting to know yourself in the company of someone who is deeply invested in helping you make that journey. Also, counseling isn't only useful for addressing painful emotions and eliminating unhelpful actions, though it is very effective (Does Therapy Work?) for those changes. It is also a venue for discovering and nurturing who you want to be - and for savoring the steps in your 'becoming'.

Educate Yourself!
