My Approach to Helping
I believe in helping people focus on their strengths and using these to overcome life issues. Most people are successful in dealing with their problems some of the time and I help them tap into those moments in order to replicate positive outcomes. The above is correlated to my training in Solution Focused Therapy. I also use and believe strongly in a family systems approach which focuses on problematic interactional patterns and helps detect and correct patterns that are passed through the generations. I also work with many couples and help them deal with a variety of issues, especially sexuality.

The two most important theoretical influences on my work are Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Family Systems Therapy. Both tend to have a very positive outlook of clients and try to move clients to a better state in a timely manner.
