My approach to therapy is to fully focus on you, the person, couple, or group coming to see me so you know you are being deeply listened to and warmly regarded. This allows you to "exhale," to feel safe enough to embark on a collaboration with me that is tailor made for you to resolve your problems, and utilize your unique strengths and gifts.
An important part of good therapy is to feel safe enough to talk about things you have not discussed before, and let yourself feel things you didn't know or realize you have been feeling. It's useful to make unconscious material conscious so that we can "put in on the table," examine it, and better understand how to help you deal with it and get better.
Becoming more conscious of what's going on inside of you, identifying it, and being able to express it to another person is a key benefit of good therapy. Developing a comfortable relationship with your therapist can help you develop this same kind of caring relationship with yourself, thereby opening more possibility for good relationships with others, whether it's work, love/romance, or family.
My ability to attune to my clients needs means that I will be very interactive with some people and very quiet with others. The same person might need me to be interactive or quiet at different times.
