Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (Florida: MT1578)
With over 30 years of experience in the mental health field, I have come to look at stress and conflict from a multidimensional perspective. I believe that conflict comes from unclear or ineffective patterns of interactions, or the dance that people do with one another. Do you notice that at times you move smoothly along the dance floor of life and at other times you just step on each others toes? If you find that the times that go along smoothly are becoming less frequent for you, it's time to look at changing your dance moves or how you interact with the people in your life and how they interact with you. This toe-stomping dance can come about as a result of past experiences, present beliefs or an unspoken, misunderstood, or just plain different idea of whatever is causing the conflict to occur.
When people are unable to resolve conflicts, they will attempt solutions they think may work to alter their reality, in an effort to change or escape from what they are experiencing. Some of these solutions include the use of drugs and alcohol, gambling, sex, and inappropriate use of the Internet; or violence towards those around them. These methods of changing the situation NEVER work. The only way to resolve conflict is to face it head on in a proverbial "meeting of the minds". I find that a neutral third party, such as a therapist, can help you to see perspectives of the problem and resolution that you may not have thought about or considered. Our role is to facilitate your problem solving in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
We, at The Sloane Center, believe that all people possess the strength and knowledge to overcome life's challenges. Our role is to assist the individual in identifying his/her hidden strength and helping them find the answers to the questions that brought them to us.
