My Approach to Helping
I have worked with individuals and couples since 1994. In my experience change, growth and healing is possible in the context of a safe therapeutic relationship. My approach is to guide you in getting to know parts of yourself you may have only had a glimmer of in the past and to learn more about other parts you may already know. We will increase your access to and awareness of underlying beliefs and heighten your ability to tune into and better meet your own needs. I will help you to better tolerate your emotions and bodily sensations, developing an enhanced ability to soothe yourself in healthful ways. This is what allows us to step outside of old/automatic patterns and develop greater courage, clarity and flexibility. My clients create relationships with greater intimacy and become more consistently authentic, creative and effective in their lives.
