To the private psychotherapy practice website of Jan Bergstrom, LMHC. I am glad that you have decided to take steps toward changing and healing your life and relationships.
My practice with couples and individuals is non-traditional in that I believe in shorter term treatment, longer sessions weeks apart, giving homework, encouraging individuals to attend intensive workshops where they learn new behavioral skills and achieve new insights. This kind of treatment results in more satisfaction and joy in one's life and encourages each individual to incorporate a practice of being relational in their lives.
I have had the pleasure of working with great teachers and mentors during my 20 year career. The ones who most influenced how I work today are: Pia Mellody, RN (5 Core Self Skills and Healing the Wounded Child, Adaptive Child and Growing the Functioning Adult), Terry Real, LICSW (Relational LifeTherapy), Brugh Joy, MD (Heart Centering Work) and Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D (Mindfulness Practice).
