Jeff Katowitz’s Perspective on the Therapeutic Process

“I believe the therapeutic process should be accessible to everyone. My role as a therapist is to partner with each client to facilitate healing. It is essential to listen carefully to an individual, couple or family and develop a partnership that combines my training and experience as a practitioner with each person’s unique capacity for healing and growth. I serve as a temporary guide to offer perspective that may be challenging to find when we are in difficult times or experiencing many of life’s transitions.”
