Chuck Dawson, Ma, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Corrales
My goal is to work as intensive as the client is capable of moving in the process. I create an environment for "breakthrough" and balance in the clients life. I work toward the short term intensive model on issues such as couples communications, PTSD and Depression issues. The immediate focus is the "Identified problem". Sharing tools and techniques we work to minimize the Identified problem with an eye to what lies under it. Using Relaxation and introspection deep core issues rise to the surface to be dealt with. This is in individuals as well as family systems. The process works.
While Therapy can be painful I believe it should be fun and exciting. The problems you face today are challenges from experiences of your past. Putting the past in perspective (new) creates an ease of dealing with the challenges of today. Its about re-educating, re-evaluation, grounding and balance.
I have designed my therapy surroundings to be in a safe, private and confidential surroundings. I am certified as a Mediator and with Collaborative Law. Appointed by Governor to Therapy and Practice board 2014
