My Approach to Helping

As your therapist, my primary role is to create a safe, curious, and accepting relationship with you in which we can explore both your difficulties and aspirations. As our work proceeds, we will develop an increasingly clearer understanding of your experience and how you can move towards the life that you really want. My years of experience, education, and self-study will aid us in our task.

It is my view that many of the challenges that get us stuck in our lives are rooted in the ways that we unconsciously relate to ourselves, others, and the world. Many of the patterns that we develop in these relationships are hard to see by ourselves, difficult to change, and are relics of a situation we may or may not remember well. In therapy, we have the opportunity to gain awareness, understanding, and freedom from patterns that are no longer necessary for us and get in the way of authentic living. I would be happy to assist you in your journey.
