In treating a patient I don’t focus only on the content, but also on the context, meaning the matrix that everybody exists in, including the family, job, home, neighborhood, geographic area, psychological and cultural milieus. In order to achieve this, it’s useful to investigate how a disorder arises so the process can be disassembled and reorganized, not merely masked. Health and illness coexist and arise out of the same condition because, diseases don’t come out of nowhere; they emerge from a lived life with a strong connection to the original blue-prints that emotions created at the cellular level.  Cultivating people’s capacities of recognizing and correcting whatever underlying disturbances are causing their distress is part of my philosophy.
