You don't have to be alone in your suffering. Suffering can take many forms and can cause great pain in our heart, body, mind and even our relationships. Suffering can trigger strong emotions, including fear, anger, helplessness, panic, and even grief. My approach to helping is to begin to address these emotions in the here and now, to help support the evolution of the whole person beyond the presenting problems. I do this through building a coherent, safe felt sense of safety, as we work to build a supportive alliance to help you become your best self.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

My view on the purpose of psychotherapy is through a mental hygiene approach. Much like our physical hygiene, our mental resilience and peak performance depend upon the routine and active management of our emotional lives. As such, the purpose of psychotherapy can often be seen as the mere irrigation of symptoms or complaints, but I see it as a supportive adjunct towards a whole way of being. Simply put, the active participation in psychotherapy connotes a commitment to personal excellence both personally and professionally.
