Dr. Friedman's Therapeutic Purposes

Dr. Friedman's Practice | Dr. Friedman's Approach | Therapeutic Purposes | Core Therapeutic Orientation

My practice is about inhabiting this present moment, witnessing and "buying out" of the ego-mind's unworkable patterns, desensitizing root emotional charges, and gaining effective tools to thrive in the world. My vision for our work is for clients to unlearn their learned limitations and have an emotionally satisfying and completing experience with their challenges. Free the ego, and you are free.

"We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are."
—Anaïs Nin

I deeply care for my clients and I am strongly committed to doing "what works," that is, "teaching the toolbox" of effective technologies, building upon powerful practical distinctions and workable living skills.

I approach therapy as a "calling" and consider it a privilege to contribute to the quality, satisfaction and fulfillment of people's lives.

My vision is to empower people to release learned limitations and become unhooked and unmanipulated by the imaginary self or ego-mind. This includes taking responsibility and be accountable for their health on all levels, and enhance living in a Win-Win system.

My vision is for clients to broaden awareness, deepen self-knowing and reveal the core Self to develop an ability for inner self-compassion and honest witnessing.

My vision emphasizes the incalculable value of being awake, present, aware and alive right now in a process of inquiry and discovery, revealing the True Self by listening and acting in concert with one's truest "inner voice."

My vision focuses on client's developing sustainable and recreate-able solutions, resulting in enhanced well being, wholeness and being one's True Self.

I vow to give my all, to do all humanly possible and offer more than what is bargained for to support people in fully accessing and expressing who they truly are, thereby experiencing a fulfilling, contributing life.
