My Approach to Helping
I generally give my undivided attention to each person when they're sitting across from me. I'm of strong opinion that life can be challenging and so many people today tend to have doubt and face those challenges alone. So when they decide to meet with me, they deserve compassion, support and a safe environment to present their issues. I can only hope that these strategies will at least start them on the road to a more balanced and stable life.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
As a therapist I'm fortunate to be privy to the most intimate details of a person's life, an invaluable gift. I then have the opportunity to help someone make sense of that gift, make it meaningful and use it to their advantage. Hopefully their life and functioning improve as a result and the individual can be productive and move toward a healthier lifestyle. Witnessing this shift is a phenomenal event that's worthwhile and inspiring. Moreover, I have the pleasure of doing it again and again for anyone that's willing to undergo the therapy process.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
If someone is 'on the fence' it's a great indication that s/he is aware that something is amiss but s/he's not certain if therapy is the answer. As frustrating as this may be it’s actually wonderful. I know that this sounds strange but take a moment to think about it. A state of flux can present a space for understanding and change, if necessary. The key thing about therapy is that there is a first session. It’s a critical opportunity for the individual to meet the therapist and vice versa. During this meeting the person can then share as much as they feel comfortable and can ask questions in turn, all in an effort to ascertain, in concert with the therapist, if therapy is appropriate. At this juncture, if therapy is deemed appropriate then the idea of stepping over the fence can become more of a reality and an active process toward harmony.
