What Jeremy Likes About Being A Therapist

I am always amazed at the courage and resourcefulness of the individuals, couples, and families with whom I have been so fortunate to work. It is a great honor when a person chooses me to share the story of their life, and I am awestruck as through this sharing of the story, people create new meanings that create the change for which they are searching.

Theory Of Change

I believe that we give and take meanings from all of our experiences. Occasionally, these meanings may bring a negative perception that begins to flow into other areas of our lives and create a problem-saturated narrative. Through the sharing of this narrative, we can begin to identify our moments of courage and strength, and re-author our experiences to create a meaning that identifies our ability to overcome such negative moments.

How Jeremy Approaches People

I believe that pace is everything and I approach therapy at the client’s pace, ensuring that we move not too slowly and not too quickly. The client is the expert of themselves and it is my job to walk beside them while we explore the change they want to create for themselves.

Theoretical Orientation

I use an eclectic and systemic approach in my work, focusing on the different resources, skills, and expertise that each person brings, including the different meanings from each interaction. As a narrative therapist, I believe it is important to focus on the meanings of experiences.
