My Approach to Helping
When you come to see me you can expect to be treated kindly and with great respect. I will listen and help you formulate your goals for therapy and determine a plan for achieving them as expediently as possible. Along the way we will reassess to make sure you are achieving the progress you desire and make any changes needed to do so.
If you are coming in as a couple my job is to help you understand each other more deeply and clearly and to teach you communication skills and positive ways to deal with conflict.
The tools I use depend on your situation and issues. Fortunately my tool belt is well developed and varied after over two decades in practice. I teach relationship skills, provide trauma treatment, and help you rewire negative and limiting belief patterns that cause anxiety and depression. I will be very engaged with you - giving feedback and homework and providing resources to help along the journey.
I will be on your team. Therapy can be quite challenging and I want you to have a strong sense of my support. I promise to work every bit as hard as you do!
