Is Psychoanalysis weird?

One form of depth psychological counseling is called psychoanalysis. Although there are many different forms of psychoanalysis, here is an excellent video courtesy of the Freud Museum in London that gives a broad explanation of what it is like to work from a depth perspective in psychotherapy. Although Freudian psychoanalysis is practiced differently today than it has been in the...[ read more ]

Is God Allowed In Session?

Paraphrasing, a client I had several years ago remarked, "I am just so relieved that I am allowed to talk about God in here. I was sure you would think I was crazy." When I first learned that clients were afraid to talk about God, religion, or spirituality in counseling, I was pretty surprised. As a counselor, I am trained...[ read more ]

Light and Shadow

When we talk about the past, it’s really easy to go one of two ways: We can either look at the past with a golden hue, regarding everything with fondness of for the days gone by; or, we can look toward the past with pangs of regret and remorse, as if a raincloud was hanging over our entire life experience....[ read more ]

Social Media and the Avoidance of Grief

I’m as guilty as anyone else of being pretty much addicted to electronic devices. You can ask pretty much any of my colleagues about this, and they’ll tell you it’s true. I’m one of those guys who has almost every kind of portable device—and I use them all, sometimes even at the same time. If you’re in a training or...[ read more ]

Good Grief

There aren't many things in life that we can be absolutely certain of. Sure, there's the old saying that the only things we can be sure of are death and taxes, which, whether we like it or not, is true. Another thing we can be sure that we will experience at one time or another is some degree of change....[ read more ]

Why Meditation Doesn’t Work

"Have you considered meditating?" I asked innocently during a session with one of my clients. The blank stare on my client's face held the answer to my question. I might as well had asked, "Have you considered driving up to Boulder and living in a yurt for a few weeks?" Despite all the research that has proven meditation is an...[ read more ]

Please, Not Another Party: Dealing with social anxiety

Although a source of excitement and enjoyment for many, being invited to big parties or social engagement can be very stressful for others. The thought of spending two or three hours around many different personalities is not only nerve-racking for some people, it’s downright terrifying. If you find yourself dreading such events, know you’re not alone. You’re probably just experiencing...[ read more ]

It’s Not Just The Blues

We find so many different words for it. Sometimes we call it the blues, the doldrums, or the blahs. Everbody gets feelings of being sad or blah sometimes -- it's a pretty normal part of life. What happens, though, when it doesn't go away? When do we know that it's something more than just feeling down, and is more accurately...[ read more ]

Are therapists responsible for the stigma around mental health care?

Although our society has come a long way, there still is a stigma associated with mental health care, counseling and psychotherapy. I don’t know what the current statistics are(or how you could accurately get at the number), but I would suspect that most people at one point or another will seek the services of a mental health counselor at least...[ read more ]
