Shane Blasko, Ph.D.
Style of Therapy
My style of therapy is interpersonal in nature, which means that the relationship between a person and their therapist is extremely important. I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is egalitarian, with the two of us working together toward shared goals. I believe that is important for the therapist to try to understand the different contexts that each client is coming from; this means that I am dedicated to learning more about how each client experiences the world, and makes sense of it. Each individual is unique, and part of my job as the therapist is to try to understand how clients make meaning of their experiences, and to assist them with their goals. I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy; it is an important relationship through which people can develop and grow, work through life transitions, learn to communicate more effectively, heal from past trauma, learn to manage disruptive symptoms through learning more effective ways of coping, and understand why we cope the way we do.
