My Approach to Helping
As a therapist I've learned: "TALKING HELPS!" When you're not feeling your feelings, or you're 'alone' with complicated, confusing feelings, then hopelessness or depression can set in. Are you having difficulties in your relationships or other aspects of your life? "Stuffed away" feelings can lead to many problematic symptoms in one's life---by beginning to feel 'buried' feelings, and learning to "tolerate" these feelings, we begin to have improved relationships with ourselves and others. As your therapist, I will be on this journey of exploration and understanding with you.
I provide client-centered counseling using a psychodynamic therapeutic approach--but most importantly, a caring approach. The process is a collaborative and active relationship between you and me, and we'll explore your feelings and beliefs in a safe and trusting environment.
I am a fee-for-service therapist. This means I'm not on health insurance plans and your confidentiality is protected.
