My Approach to Helping
If you are feeling unhappy, anxious, dissatisfied, disconnected, or unfulfilled; I would love the opportunity to help you. I have worked with a variety of people of all ages facing lots of different problems. It's not about the problems you have; it's about who you want to become. Drawing from your own strengths and resources, I can help you make the changes you want in life. Life can be good again.
Are you tired of constantly fighting with your partner? Are you sick of feeling alone even though you're in a relationship? Break-up and divorce aren't the only answers. I am especially passionate about helping couples: dating, engaged and married; improve their relationships. Partner with me to make your life and your relationship a success story.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I love the opportunity to cross paths with so many different people and have the potential to have a positive impact in someone's life. Everyone has a story. I find it fascinating to hear each person's story and potentially become a part of someone's story in ways that help people feel better, make changes, achieve their goals and find their purpose in life.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
This is always of great concern and one of my first questions for new people. I go out of my way to ask for feedback at each and every session, especially anything that doesn't sit well with you, to make sure we are on the right track.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
Only second to your own strengths and resources, our alliance from your point of view, not mine, is a critical factor in change. If you feel like I'm listening to you, I understand you, I respect you, my approach is right for you and we are working on the right concerns; then odds are, you are going to get better! This is why giving me honest feedback about your therapy experience is crucial.
My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'
You are a human being, first and foremost. Regardless of what diagnosis you may have been given or what disorders you may have; I prefer to focus on your personhood as a whole. Of course, I want to address symptoms of concern. I also want you to know that I view you as a human being, imperfect as we all are, rather than as a piece of electronic equipment that needs to be reprogrammed to properly function.
