My Approach to Helping
Often people will start therapy when they feel they have run out of options, relationships are not changing, jobs are unsatisfactory, and the anxiety about everyday life keeps growing. At this juncture in people's lives it is important that one finds a place where one feels safe and able to begin to unpack all that has felt burdensome. Then there are people who have had therapy before, maybe on and off, and yet do not feel that they are done; the therapist was not a good match or they are in a stage in their lives where they wish for a deeper kind of inner work.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Therapy works when the therapist and the clients are a "good fit." We are not meant to"open up" and talk about ourselves about our most intimate thoughts to a stranger. So it is only natural for you to feel some uneasiness about starting the process of therapy. And it is most important that whomever you choose to work with you feel safe with them, and if you don't, that you feel free to talk about it, without fear of retaliation or negative consequences. In therapy, individual and couples' therapy, negative feelings as well as positive feelings and thoughts will come up, and it is your therapist's (my) job to help you with all of that. Therapy is not a journey you travel by yourself. It is an honor to join your journey, as you allow another person to be there with you to help you through the difficulties you are encountering.
