THE HODOS GROUP     Integrative Psychotherapy

Philosophy

Listening to the narrative of every person’s life is fascinating.  Being  empathic, interactive,  and oriented toward making positive changes is part of the group philosophy. Psychotherapy is initially about being  open  to exploring different parts of  your self, the significant others in your life, and the quality of the connection. We are both particularly skilled in working with young adults and adults, however equally enjoy working with all age groups.

One main focus for therapy is to find balance in our lives, taking into account ones physical health, as well as mental health, and developing the ability for being psychologically centered and present. We need to be able to accurately assess what the causative factors are for conflict, pain, illness, or feeling ungrounded. Finding destructive patterns can be quite useful( such as shame, blame and guilt). Forgiveness, finding our humility and our sense of connection to humanity, and to the earth, are germane to the group’s philosophy, with the end goal being to  help people find a sense of joy in their relationships, and to focus on more positive aspects of life.
