My approach to therapy begins with the environment that is cultivated between therapist and client. I strive to create and maintain an environment in which empathy and a nonjudgmental stance form the fabric through which evidence-based treatment that is selected based on client presentation and need can be woven. My philosophy is that all individuals are doing the best they can with the tools and resources that they have in their lives at this current moment. At times, however, learning new ways in which to develop and apply the tools and resources that exist innately within us can mean the difference between leading lives in which we experience great pain and little joy and experiencing life as being purposeful and meaningful, even during the rough times.

More Info About My Practice

In my practice, I tailor therapy to meet the needs of the individual client that I am serving. In my view, the pain that we experience in life becomes suffering when we experience that pain as being too great to bear. When this occurs, we often attempt to ignore or find it difficult to truly acknowledge that pain. This often prevents us from recognizing the choices that we can make in dealing with that pain, keeping us from mitigating the negative effects that it creates in our lives. Using mindfulness, we recognize that the "pain" experienced by a situation will often have a defined starting point and a defined ending point. However, our emotional and behavioral responses to that pain cause suffering that may continue to be experienced long after the initial pain has come and gone. Using Dialectical and Cognitive-Behavioral strategies, I hope to help clients recognize the influence that they can exert over outcomes in their own lives, seeing themselves as powerful beings capable of dynamic change.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to help my clients see that THEY can become powerful agents of change in their own lives. Often times, when we have faced struggle and hardship, we may forget just how much sway and influence we hold over outcomes in our lives. If we are able to begin to, for the moment that exists in the here and now, tolerate the pain of negative emotions, we can begin to see much more clearly options that exist for dealing with the pain of our lives. As individuals begin to develop a greater sense of moment-to-moment awareness, they begin to see that every moment in life holds within it a choice. In recognizing these choices, clients can reclaim their sense of agency and capability, allowing them to break out of old patterns and experience a renewed sense of connection and joy.
