What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
Being a therapist is a goal I have had for myself since childhood. I believe strongly that therapy can make a huge difference in a person's life, as it has in mine. I want to pass on the gift of this self awareness.
My Therapy Focus
I use an eclectic approach, blending psychoanalysis, insight-oriented therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I see therapy as a change-oriented process, not just an open dialogue. Therapy requires your commitment to initiating, sticking with, and contemplating productive changes in your life.
I have been practicing meditation for many years and this deeply informs my approach to promoting change in my clients' lives. I teach my clients effective and simple approaches to meditation that offer lasting benefits.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Choosing to see a therapist is a positive step to take on one's life journey. Occasionally there is a poor match between therapist and client, and empowering my client to explore the reasons for the disappointing experience, and working with her/him to prevent another such disappointment is often what is required.
