I believe that one of the strongest healing factors of psychotherapy is the ability to have a safe space, for 45-50 minutes, once per week, that is entirely and completely devoted to you. In a world of constant distractions and several competing family/work/social responsibilities, we often find that our ability to be present and "sit with and look at life" can become limited.
This is why I practice from the viewpoint that psychotherapy can become the "anchor" through which this growth can occur, only after we calm some of the outside noise. Psychotherapy can also provide the empowering steering wheel that will make you become aware of your best self and use it to face every life challenge: be it increasing your level of fulfillment, aging transitions, dating, breakups, losses, emotional difficulties, and meaning-making.
From behavioral "let's get things done" approaches to deeply exploratory "let's look at the past" psychodynamic approaches, I believe that many types of therapy hold their own truth. While my techniques draw from the wisdom of different approaches, my primary therapy philosophy is person-centered. That is, I work relationally because I believe that an authentic and unconditionally strengths-seeking therapeutic relationship is one of the strongest predictors and best conduits for change, regardless of who a client works with.
