My Approach to Helping
WHAT STOPS YOU FROM HAVING THE LIFE YOU WANT? Do you want to feel good about yourself, enjoy your life, and have satisfying relationships with others?
Together, we'll look at who you really are and the relationships you are in. We'll learn about what works, what doesn’t, understand why it’s not working, and help you to change things so your life does work for you.
I see therapy as a process of self-discovery: a careful, supportive exploration of how you act, think, feel, and relate to others. We’ll see how those all have been affected by your life experiences. This will give you the opportunity to grow and develop new and more effective ways of interacting and communicating in your relationships. In therapy with me you can gain a better sense of understanding through becoming aware of outmoded patterns, the strength to tolerate life’s pains, and the capacity to tolerate its pleasures.
I see my role as an ally and navigator on your journey. I have made my own journey of self-exploration, and I see myself as continuously pursuing that voyage. I can offer support and encouragement when the going is rough, and I can also share in your pleasures and joy in living. I can help with identifying and working through obstacles. I will work with you to increase your sense of internal harmony, enhance your ability to relate to others honestly, openly, and deeply, and help you feel more productive, effective, and joyful in everyday living.
