My Approach to Helping
Choose the therapist, not the therapy. Quality mental health care is a real, human exchange; an opportunity to explore, strengthen, and change aspects of who you are. When psychotherapy is effective, the therapist and patient are creating openings, not closures. This is what heals.
Feel-good Instagram memes and pop-psychology tropes are not therapeutic, and I don't waste my time with them (or yours). Therapy should be deeply personal and focused on true psychological change: at the heart of meaningful psychotherapy is a meaningful relationship. That is what we seek to develop with all our patients and that's why they get better.
