If you are:
For each there is a path...
As a therapist, I believe that each of us has a unique path toward happiness and fulfilling our potential as a human being. We each have a natural ability and inclination to be happy and successful and a deep sense of ourselves which sometimes becomes buried beneath years of striving and struggling to survive and be successful in the world. When we are experiencing psychological problems we are experiencing a block or diversion from our path to happiness and we feel "stuck," frustrated, saddened, depressed, angry, and generally cut-off from ourselves and others. When this happens, life appears to lose its meaning and often, we begin to lose hope for happiness and self-fulfillment.
Psychology and psychotherapy can be resources helping us develop insight and the skills to become aware of what is happening inside us and in the world around us. When we gain that insight, we develop skills to help us cope with the obstacles in our path. It can help us re-gain our sense of purpose and place us back on the path toward a full and happy life.
Psychotherapy provides a safe place to unpack emotional and painful experiences and expose them to a transformational process which results in greater power to understand and control our lives.
Who is Mark T. Palmer, PhD?
I am a psychotherapist and meet with my clients in Denver, Colorado. I have two PhDs, one in Clinical Psychology and one in Interpersonal Communication. I have had experience as a therapist working with people of ages from 7 to 70, and with various ethnic, cultural, and gender backgrounds. My clients have brought a wide variety of psychological and spiritual problems to our work together and we have faced and worked through many difficulties that come with them. In every case, my faith in the natural and positive change that can come from therapy has always been sustained and encouraged. My greatest heroes are the ones I meet everyday in my office.
