My Approach to Helping

Every individual is a compilation of their genetics, early learned behavior, primary identifications, patterning, and life experience. Psychotherapy is a guide to identifying and mapping these factors, appreciating the ones that serve well as well as learning to work with and restructure those that, born of dysfunction, continue to cause unhappiness and anxiety.

Psychotherapy is a mutual process, where a therapist acts as pilot for navigating what is brought by the patient - the co-pilot. It is the patient's job to think about and gradually share their experiences and thoughts while it is the therapist's job to listen carefully, comment effectively, and guide the patient to a better understanding of the lines that have shaped them.

Verbalization leads to consciousness, and the chance to choose alternate ways of coping with situations and relationships. Out of cognition comes actions which lead to character changes. These can help a person to better reach their life goal and personal fulfillment, be these goals relationship, career, familial, financial or spiritual.
