General Practice Area: Having someone to hear your story, to really understand what is happening in your world and in your heart is the first step toward feeling better. Deep listening from an AEDP therapist often results in the awakening of a persons resilient self, a part of the self that is open to new learning and new experiences. Many feel intrinsically cared for and have impulses to explore, understand and move ahead with their relationships and their lives. AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy)works! I enjoy helping individuals and couples manage the emotional demands of their relationships. When pain begins to build up staying together can be very difficult, even overwhelming. I am passionate about helping couples, especially couples struggling with betrayal as a result of affairs or chemical dependancy. Trust is possible when you see personal change resulting from personal investment in treatment. This may require individuals to gain communication and other recovery/relational skills and make priorities around building their life together. I am trained in drug and alcohol recovery and have a Masters degree in Family Systems theory. Many of my clients are children of addicts or come from abusive families and are struggling with codependency. [ Email Steve Dill ] [ Go to counselor - therapist website ]
