My Approach to Helping
During the past 20 years working as a family therapist I have witnessed the importance of the therapeutic relationship. Deciding to seek therapy and the process of therapy itself can both be very challenging. When the therapeutic relationship is strong, the process is easier. In my practice, I seek to create a sense of trust and comfort for all members of a family. When working with people, I approach the problems they identify with a stance of curiosity and hope. I seek to understand each problem a client wants to work on, and I believe that every one of my clients has the strength and the knowledge within them to make progress.
Seeking treatment is a brave decision, and I am humbled by my clients' courage everyday.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Therapy seekers who are on the fence about starting therapy are in the majority. Most people aren't completely enthusiastic and excited about starting therapy. Usually I find that clients on the fence feel much better about starting therapy once they find the right therapist. The doubts, fears, and worries about starting therapy are usually alleviated once an ethical, therapeutic relationship is established. Find a therapist who is a good fit for you.
