My Approach to Helping

I work to provide a safe environment for clients to explore feelings. I provide feedback and direction as necessary. I am not the \"listen and say \'Uh hum\" type. My approach is direct, and often I use humor to bring things into perspective. I use cognitive behavioral techniques to help you make sense of things and learn how your thinking affects your feelings and decisions. I identify cognitive distortions (ways of communicating that drive people to the brink) to help people in conflict understand what is happening between them. I look to family of origin relationships (Object Relations) to help clients understand what is being repeated in their current relationships and how to move beyond that. I use trauma specific interventions (Psych-K, Neuro-Emotional Technique and Heartspeak) to help clients move quickly through their distress. These techniques are also used to help clients change their behavior and beliefs about themselves. I use all of the above to help people find themselves, their value and worth as well as their life\'s purpose at any age.

More Info About My Practice

I am teletherapy only. I use all of my skills to work with the LBGTQ community. I provide counseling for relationships, polyamory, transitioning, cross-dressing, gender confusion. My goal is to improve the quality of life for anyone who comes into my practice.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I have been in psychotherapy for 30 years...In practice and for myself. I believe in the change that can be created in therapy. I speak from experience. A therapist can only take a client as far as they have gone themselves . Perhaps this is why my supervisor, way back in the 1980's, asked me, "What's your hurry, Jeri?, You really can't be a good therapist until you're in your fifties, anyway?" He was so right. I love knowing the things I know now that I didn't when I was younger. Clients tell me they find my knowledge and take on life inspiring.
