My approach to therapy is strengths-based and collaborative. I believe my role is to act as facilitator of change by helping clients to identify and make use of the strengths they already possess to effect change which results in a sense of empowerment and mastery. I strive to accept the person "where they are" and believe that maladaptive behavior is typically an attempt to respond to situations in the best way one knows how - if they knew how to cope and respond to situations more effectively they would. Thus, my approach is one of acceptance balanced with acknowledgment of the need for change.

More Info About My Practice
While my approach is typically eclectic, I am trained in the provision of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, (DBT), and have over 15 years experience as a DBT therapist and skills group facilitator. I often incorporate DBT concepts and strategies in my individual work regardless of presenting issues as I find aspects of it applicable to almost any situation. Common problems/issues addressed by DBT are, self-injury, self-defeating behavior, emotional instability, impulsivity, substance abuse and suicidality. Of late I've enjoyed working with adolescent girls and am in the process of developing a DBT group for them. Updates to come soon.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Of all the important concepts I learned in graduate school perhaps the one that has proven consistently true throughout my years in practice is the importance of the relationship between client and therapist. While technique and good clinical skills are important, little can be accomplished without a client/therapist relationship that is based in trust, respect and acceptance. I strive to provide an environment that is warm, non-judgmental, validating and safe. It takes courage to entrust a complete stranger with ones personal struggles, problems and feelings and many who seek therapy have had their trust betrayed already, sometimes many times. Therefore I consider the therapeutic relationship to be the "change agent" in therapy regardless of the type of therapy being provided.
