Psychotherapy, especially family therapy, holds great meaning for me because it can be used to help fellow

human beings achieve release from their suffering. My role, as I see it, is to share what I know by teaching

individuals who feel lost and alone the right tools that will help them heal, and skills that can be used for a life

time. In assisting with this process I receive the greatest gift of all, the experience of seeing sufferers heal

and share in their joy of self-discovery. That to me is what it means to fully feel the human connection.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

My purpose as a compassionate therapist is to share with fellow human beings who are going through difficult

times what I have learned from psychological research, methods and my own life experiences. My goal with

potential clients is to help them reacquaint themselves with what worked for them in the past; to rediscover

their own forgotten strengths that allowed them to reach this juncture in their lives, and implement them anew

with a clearer focus and effectiveness.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

My therapeutic methods are influenced by models that empathize and respectfully guide those

individuals who are seeking clarity and peace in their lives. These methods do not pathologize or

label people as psychologically abnormal because they are in distress. That is why I prefer methods such as

Coherence Therapy, Mindful Awareness, and Imago Therapy, as well as protocols such as EMDR and Emotional

Freedom Technique.
