Therapy with Kyle
Therapy can be difficult, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable and transformative!
I am a pragmatist with a knack for developing interpersonal power in others. I work with individuals, couples, multi-generational family systems, families with children – and I am trained and experienced in working with a wide variety of life issues.
It’s no secret that human behavior takes a lifetime to develop and changing innate or well-practiced behavior can be a complex task. With a practical and research-guided approach, I help families and individuals draw on their strengths and replicate successes, both small and large.
There is a common perception that therapy is a process of talking about the problems we face – and by talking about them, they’ll somehow go away. The research says that this is a terrible approach! People rarely access a therapist when things are going great. So while it’s true that the discovery phase of therapy is problem focused, what follows in working with me is a process of helping pay particular attention to what makes things better – sometimes in significant ways and sometimes only by degrees. My expertise is not in solving other people’s problems. My expertise is helping you utilize your expert status on you.
I utilize powerful Client-directed outcome-informed therapy (CDOI) practices in my work. Helping you incorporate this approach into our work together drives a greater therapeutic alliance and a higher success rate and is an important part of our success.
