My Approach to Helping
Psychotherapy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves. Where else can you be true to yourself and express your needs without hiding either? The relief alone releases our creative ability to solve our life problems. To finally be honest with another human being is one of the most curative experiences anyone can have. As they say, "secrets keep you sick."
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
All forms of suffering, whether anxiety, depression, compulsive behavior, addiction (using or self-medication), loneliness and broken or unsatisfactory relationships, are symptoms, not disorders. These symptoms stem from alienation from our true self and others, and signal the need for change.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
A safe therapeutic relationship can provide immediate relief as human connection is the antidote to all our suffering. Over time, it is also transformative - by helping us overcome the alienating effects of our past in the present, and restoring our ability to have the kind of life and relationships we deserve.
