I believe strongly in the human potential for growth and change especially during times of difficulty and personal crisis. I believe that every problem presents us with an opportunity, as we often resist that which we need to learn most. My intention for you is to gently but dynamically create opportunities for growth and healing through flexible and creative alternatives to break through old patterns.
I like to collaborate with motivated clients who are actively seeking to change their lives. My goal is to help you discover your own solutions to your problems and concerns in an environment that is welcoming, empathetic and non-judgmental. I do that by carefully attending to your thoughts and feelings. Although I will offer specific “interventions” I believe that change occurs during therapy when there is strong motivation combined with the quality of our connection.
I include a blend of conventional and alternative approaches, drawing upon a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what would be most helpful for you. With sensitivity and compassion, I enable you to build upon your strengths and to identify and achieve your life goals.
As a systemic and experiential therapist, I focus on your natural resources and resiliencies to help you make powerful and positive changes in your life. I believe that people have an innate need to move toward growth and healing. My goal is to provide an accepting and understanding climate that helps facilitate your growth and healing. As you teach me about yourself, we will consider your emotional, behavioral and spiritual life as well as the environment that surrounds you daily. I will help you to look at your past, present, and future to identify problems and solutions. I truly love the process of collaborating together to help you and your family discover and live a more meaningful, satisfying and authentic life.
