The word psychotherapy stems from the words psyche and healing, meant to describe the healing of the soul, or self.

We  live in a chaotic world where many groups can be misled in efforts to  gain inclusion.  Our instincts often misguide us.  Psychotherapy seeks  understanding of an individuals’s self and how new life skills can be  developed to find one’s way within our chaotic world.

Azure’s  practice of psychotherapy is founded from a base of Sociometry, the  study of our cultural order, group and individual interaction.  A  person often seeks psychotherapy with feelings of impairment.  The  healing of this feeling can best be reached by gaining awareness of  influences that surround a person’s world.  The “seen” and the “unseen”  must be given full vision:  the cooperation of heart and mind, and  knowledge of when healthy interaction with others is possible.

Acceptance  of power to change launches the path of wellness.  Dr. Moreno, founder  of Sociometry, had a motto,  “It takes a long time to create a healthy  self.”  Sometimes the length of the “long time” has already been lived  prior to the start up of psychotherapy.  Many individuals gain the  balance that they seek within a brief treatment sequence.

A  difficult history need not be an impediment to wellness.  It can  hold promise as a catalyst of change bringing strength, wisdom and  skill, a tool kit for living well.
