My Approach to Helping

My approach is collaborative and active. I balance making therapy challenging at times, yet playful enough so that you will want to come back. My clients say this therapy-on-the-move is easier than a traditional sit-on-a-couch scenario in which the confinement of the room can get in the way of the work. I think for some people, especially teens & young adults, the idea of sitting in a room with a therapist is antithetical to being in a space that is good for sharing tough stuff.

A variety of evidence-based practices inform my approach. I draw most from Motivational Interviewing, Mentalization, and Narrative Therapy. I don\'t hold to the orthodoxy of an approach if it isn\'t a fit for you, and a shift in method is a part of the therapy itself. My professional experience is like a set of guideposts and trail blazes for us to refer to in our work together. Your many thousands of hours of life experience will be the material we continually return to in search of next steps.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Have you been to a psychotherapist in the past, or heard unfortunate stories from friends or family about sitting on a couch across from a somewhat detached professional who didn't seem to 'get it'?

Imagine coming to a therapist where there is no couch, and no chair, and no other usual artifacts of 'going to a therapist'. If you decide to try my oddly unique (but intuitively simple) approach to therapy, I promise that you will have a refreshingly unique experience, in numerous ways -- and this all starts with a complimentary consultation on the phone to see if we may be a fit.
