Psychotherapy with Individuals and their Relationship
For more than forty years Dr Richard Hamling, LMHC has provided psychotherapy and clinical mental health services.

Relational-Interpersonal Psychotherapy i
s a non-authoritarian, and collaborative way of being in resolving conflicts, whether this is a clinical mental health matter or issues within the context of ones  relationship. This method is a viable and evidence-based approach to care.

Indeed, it can be hard to live in a relationship and as part of human nature, we can not live without them. Relationships and their patterns are complex.. We can, however, live in greater harmony with ourselves and others by understanding and opening ourselves to solutions, which often times lay hidden from clear view. Understanding therapy from this perspective helps people make their own choices on how to live. Interpersonal-Relational Psychotherapy is not about telling others how to live, what to do or a one size fits all mind frame. Rather, this relational approach is very much person-centered which fosters ones own personal strength and direction. Key is a healthy sense of self-worth, living mindfully or closer to life as it unfolds, a purposeful and meaningful way of being.

Many find this way of therapy useful for a host of mental health concerns such as depression, divorce, resolving trauma, grief and other complicated issues associated with mental well-being.

Research does support the value of psychotherapy in conjunction with medical treatment.
