Thank you for reading my profile,and for taking steps toward feeling better. I enjoy helping through therapy by facilitating a calm and listening presence so that you feel heard, understood and validated. In many ways, therapy is a purposeful conversation, focused on helping you to identify and sort through your thoughts, feelings and behaviors to better understand yourself. While increasing this awareness, we can then identify our choices and areas for change. Many of us come to therapy feeling fearful, depressed and inadequate, perhaps from adverse experiences, losses of important relationships and roles, or from goals that haven't been achieved as we planned. During times of distress, it is still important to identify your strengths, as well as to talk about and savor your new possibilities and solutions. I find it most gratifying to help you to view yourself and your life from an alternate perspective, as well as with acceptance. My approach to therapy is also about collaborating with you on identifying coping tools for managing the effects of painful emotions, by helping you to challenge negative thinking habits and destructive actions, and with assisting you in using more healthy communication patterns in your relationships.
