My Approach to Helping
I believe that the motivation to make desired changes in our lives comes out of insight into the underlying motivations and the positive intentions behind our behaviors. I believe we continue to act out in our behavior patterns until we understand them. I also believe it is only in an environment of unconditional acceptance that insight comes. I offer a safe, open, and trustworthy environment so that my clients can say whatever they need to say without fear of judgment, so that together we can make see how their actions make sense in view of what their heart is desiring and plan more hopeful strategies for their life. I specialize in psychodynamic psychotherapy and in-depth psychology. In conversation together we will look at your experiences, your relationships, what daily life is like for you, any dreams you have had, and what you hope for in life. My clients often say they are more healed, less compulsive, have a greater understanding of why they do what they do, have increased clarity around what they want, have a better sense of how to get what they want, and have an increased ability to communicate their needs and desires to others.
