My Approach to Helping
I recognize that the process of entering therapy can be difficult, scary, and emotionally charged. With that in mind, I listen carefully to my clients and work at a pace comfortable to each person. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy where we look at patterns of behavior in real time and solve problems together.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Workplace cutbacks, technological changes, career dissatisfaction, and the desire to do something different mean many people change careers. I help my clients better understand themselves, make realistic assessments, and achieve satisfying careers. The process begins with assessing my clients' skills, style, intelligence, values, and interests. Sometimes we work to overcome anxiety about searching for a job. Other times we work to understand your weaknesses and strengths. Sometimes, the goal is to make peace with a current job so you can advance more quickly. I also use my own experience as a successful career-changer to help my clients make decisions.
My Therapy Focus
I've helped many clients change careers, enter relationships, reinvigorate their existing relationships and careers, relate better to others, and make peace with their lives and choices. I help my clients manage problems so they can feel more fulfilled.
I primarily work with adults in individual settings, and rely upon psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and psychoanalysis.
