Corey views therapy as a collaborative process aimed at facilitating emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal shifts in clients. To achieve this, he believes that trust and vulnerability are extremely important, and place a large emphasis on the relationship. It is his goal for you to have a relationship in which you feel comfortable disclosing your most intimate feelings and trusting that he will be able to support and guide you through the therapeutic process.
No topic is too big or too small, and Corey’s hope is that you can feel comfortable discussing anything with him. With all clients, Corey aspires to create shifts in how you view yourself, others, and the world through insight. This is because he believes that as people, we are a sum total of all of our life experiences.
As your therapist, it is his job to help guide you through the process by making connections and to make you aware of the effects of some of these experiences on your life at the present. It is his hope that in your work together you will achieve these goals, and any others you might have so that you are able to have a deeper and more fulfilling life. Therapy is a huge step towards better understanding yourself and the world around you, and Corey is eager to move through this process with you.
