Joseph Charles Bentz, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Walnut Creek
You have every capacity within yourself needed to proceed safely in moving through the issues you face. You will always lead "Where to go or What to do" next. We will explore together where and how the need to have safety, connection, and meaning is guiding your life. This takes a strength and confidence that can be accessed and developed - new choices can be made. These choices restore vitality and contact with the inherent goodness which we can experience ever more strongly and which can become more consistently available to you.
We will include your present moment experiences of sensations and feelings that accompany your thoughts and ideas. These faithfully and accurately access what we really want to know about ourselves. Insights emerge and empowering embodied experiences occur. This process makes time for such fuller experience - deeper understandings naturally emerge.
With the supporting awareness of the sensations and feelings occurring in your body, meaningful and satisfying changes can more rapidly arise. New options replace old locked-in patterns and provide new flexibility. These new responses (new resources for lasting change) will steadily integrate.
