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 Family Systems techniques to help parents get a handle on their children and adolescents. I use cognitive behavioral techniques to help you make sense of things and learn how your thinking affects your feelings and decisions. 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 identify cognitive distortions (ways of communicating that drive people to the brink) to help couples with conflict understand what is happening between them. I use trauma specific interventions (Psych-K, Neuro-emotional Technique and EMDR) to help clients move quickly through their distress. I use all of the above to help people find themselves, their value and worth and their life's purpose at any age.

More Info About My Practice

I use all of my skills to work with the LBGTQ community. I provide counseling for relationships, polyamory, transitioning, cross-dressing, gender confusion/inclusion, androgeny.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I have been in psychotherapy for 30 years...Not just in practice, but for myself! I am such a believer in the change that can be created. I have become a different person from who I was every year before this. 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, told me, "What's your hurry Jeri?, You can't really be a good therapist until you're in you're fifties?" He was so right. I love knowing the things I know now that I didn't when I was younger. I have grown and learned so much that clients find inspiring.
