Person-Centered Therapy

Person-centered therapy, also known as client-centered therapy and Rogerian therapy, is a form of psychotherapy that was developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940s. Person-centered therapy is based on Roger’s belief that every human being strives for and has the capacity to fulfill his or her own potential. A person-centered therapist is likely to recognize and trust human potential, providing clients with empathy and unconditional positive regard to elicit change.

Shannon Heers

I come from primary a strengths-based perspective in working with clients, and I value the relationship between the client and therapist as the most effective component of change. Person-centered therapy lets me listen to your story, affirm what you are you feeling, and move forward with your journey.

Georginia Weygand, Ed.S.

Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Child Therapy, Individual Therapy

I strive to be person-centered. A child is a child first, they happen to have a diagnosis or have difficulty. My evaluations as well revolve around describing the person and their behavior, characteristics, abilities, etc., not the disorder/disability they may meet criteria for.

Nadine Ryser

Individual Therapy, Couples Therapy, Family Therapy, Adolescent/Teen Therapy

Treatment or mental health therapy in my opinion, will never be successful unless the client is permitted to be what I call 'the Director' of their treatment. In doing so, I allow the client to lead their course of treatment, and in that journey I can provide guidance and feedback to increase one's likelihood of achieving goals that have been set.

Person-Centered Therapy is similar to Client Centered Therapy. The therapist creates a relationship with the client that is built on positive regard and acceptance. The therapist portrays a congruence of being genuine and empathic. The therapy relationship is key to the client feeling safe and comfortable to be who they are.
