My Approach to Helping
My strength as a therapist is the ability to listen and understand deeply and to provide a compassionate presence which helps you see yourself more clearly. Psychotherapy provides a safe space for learning to connect to the full range of your experience, especially those parts you may dislike or that make you feel uncomfortable, ashamed or vulnerable. The psychotherapy relationship supports the process of acknowledging and working through feelings and is useful in addressing issues such as addictive and compulsive behavior, identity struggles, anxiety and depression. Because each person is unique, there can be no set formula for helping people find solutions and pursue their goals. As a therapist I focus on the particular problems presented, explored in a direct, supportive, and interactive manner, and always from an empathic perspective. It is only when we can be sufficiently intimate with ourselves that we can be comfortable with others.
