My Approach to Helping

We all go through periods of our lives where we begin feel and think differently. What we once assumed would always be true changes. Perhaps, we just do not feel ourselves. A variety of things can initiate these changes. Our marriage may not be working. Someone may leave a relationship. We may lose our job. Our child may be making dangerous choices. Someone we love may be drinking too much. The key is how you cope with these changes.

For over two decades, I have been assisting others in navigating these changes. I provide an environment that is accepting, non-judgmental, and inclusive where you can talk about what matters most. Your privacy is always my highest priority. It is also important to me that you feel respected, empowered, and valuable in my presence. Often people finish their appointments feeling relief. Yet what is most important to me is the time you are not in my office. If you come in once a week, how you are feeling and thinking the 167 hours we are not together is essential. In this way, you are not dependent on me to feel better.

My practice is a place where you can ask me questions and I will share my thoughts with you. You can decide if what I am saying is of value for your particular situation. I not only intend to listen with empathy, but I will offer you suggestions to navigate the challenges you are facing. You will have the opportunity to learn the skills to calm yourself down, whether you are angry, sad, or afraid. We will work together to help you heal at the deepest level, getting to the root of the problem. My goal is always to assist clients to achieve a level of healing that is as complete as possible. Furthermore, with me you can learn how to change the way your brain is working, so that you think and feel more like your adult self. My intention is that you walk away able to navigate change differently for the rest of your life. For example, if you get angry with your child, you can learn to quickly regain your emotional neutrality and respond to the situation with mindful clarity.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

The most important factors in choosing a therapist is that you like them, they like you, and you think they can help you. The relationship between the client and therapist is very important in the effectiveness of the treatment.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

I am trained in Affect Management Skills Training. The advantage in using this approach is that the focus begins with the client learning the skills to calm one's feelings. Later, we address the underlying reasons for painful feelings. These techniques are very effective in resolving trauma.
