My Approach to Helping
I believe every person has a powerful story and deserves respect. I work to understand the goals and concerns of the individuals I meet. I work with individuals and couples who are struggling to have relationships that work for them. I do my best to listen to their perspective and if I have reason to believe I might not be the best therapist for them, I refer them elsewhere. The different therapeutic approaches are just tools to help clients experience success.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
I myself have had good and not so good experiences seeking individual therapy, but don't give up. First begin by spending time with a potential therapist on the phone. Tell them your concern and ask them to speak with you about how therapy would be with them. They may ask you what you think went wrong in your last experience, they may explain their approach etc..What they say may not matter as much as are they listening to your concern and responding to that? If you feel they aren't, try another therapist. The phone interview can save you a lot of time and can help start things off with you speaking honestly about a big concern.
