“I help clients with their current life issues in the context of their unique history and values. I support clients in developing new ways of being or interacting in relationships. I draw from my life experience combined with an in-depth understanding of the human condition. What keeps people stuck? What makes us repeat the same painful patterns?
There is no single approach to the process of counseling. My strength as a therapist is my adaptive, individualized approach, accepting you right where you are, and working with the way you are. A compassionate relationship is the foundation of my practice. By providing an open and collaborative space, you can explore your thought patterns, your emotional reactions and your behaviors. In a trusting client-therapist relationship, you are better able to discover and implement the changes you seek for yourself. My goal for you is that you achieve results in a brief period of time. Your willingness is the key. And I will work as hard as you.”
