Parke Burgess

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

I practice according to a focus-oriented, person-centered approach. I believe that healing will surely occur if I am able to be truly genuine with you, offering you unconditional acceptance as I try to understand deeply your experience of the world. I believe that we each possess within us a spontaneous capacity to become more at home in our own skin, given the right kind of support from a therapist. And as we become increasingly at home within ourselves, the troubles that brought us into therapy begin to recede. I endeavor to provide my clients with precisely that kind of support. Drawing from current research emerging from the fields of Attachment Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Affect Regulation Theory, I work from the perspective that the interpersonal dynamic is the most important single element in therapy. Also incorporated into my work are elements of phenomenology, existentialism, and multicultural perspectives.

As a couple therapist, I use Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). This method focuses on the emotional needs of both members of the couple, helping each person to discover their own, and their partner’s, deepest aspirations for the relationship.
