My Approach to Helping

As a therapist, I have two main objectives:
a. Help you to better understand the issues that you are facing and
b. Maximize your ability to deal with those issues.

Developing Understanding:

Often just making sense of a situation and reflecting on events is helpful on its own. Of course, we all live our lives in a social context. Our families, friends, work, culture, and community impact our lives positively and negatively. I help you to consider how these aspects of your life might be relevant to the issues that you are facing.

Helping You to Maximize your Ability to Deal with Life's challenges:

I will also make sure to highlight your personal strengths. Often people that are feeling overwhelmed tend to focus on only the negatives and are not able to recognize the coping tools that they are already using.
In some difficult situations, having someone to help you with problem-solving might improve your situation.

As well, I might be able to suggest some new skills or other ways to look at your situation so that you can manage it more effectively. In generating ideas, I draw on my training, research and therapy experience to guide you to a more positive place.
