The Townsend model offers a holistic look at one’s life from the perspectives of attachment, boundaries, reality, and adulthood. This includes exploring things like: Do you have meaningful relationships? Do you suffer from people-pleasing? Are you able to grieve your losses? Do you mutually respect, and feel mutually respected, by your peers? I believe counseling is an opportunity to receive the grace, truth, and time one needs in order to experience growth and transformation.
I am also continuing to learn about emotionally-focused therapy, affect phobia therapy, and psychophysiology. The mind-body connection fascinates me as I have personally experienced the physical benefits of psychotherapy.
