My Approach to Helping
Have you been running faster and faster, yet feel stuck? Maybe you worry so much you prevent yourself from moving at all. Do you sometimes feel you are "too much" and worry about pushing people away? Are you longing for better intimacy with your partner? Does the pain in your relationship make you question if you can ever be happy with this person you once felt so connected to? Perhaps you've become aware that the residue of past trauma is impacting your life today and you are ready to heal those injuries.
Right now, what you are facing might feel so insurmountable you can't see how to get out from underneath it. I can help.
From our first session, you will leave with tools for change. I help our sessions stay focused on what is helpful for you. Of course I've got a wide range of therapeutic skills gathered from a lifetime of study, lots of experience helping people, and an ongoing interest in how to shift unhelpful strategies. But I also offer an uncommon amount of presence. I'm fully "there" for you, in a way that means you will feel like someone is on your side right from the beginning of our relationship. I'm an interactive therapist, not afraid to make suggestions, to challenge you, to help you truly embody the change you are longing for. And I can also sit back and offer a calm, centered space for listening so that you feel fully heard and seen.
I have been helping my clients to find hope, joy and resolution of their difficulties since 1998 and I am just as passionate about helping you on your journey today as I was when I first started. I offer a free 30 minute phone consultation to give you a sense of whether we will be a good fit. Just let me know the best times to reach you in your message and I'll return your call promptly.
