My Approach to Helping

Acceptance is the key to all our challenges. The acceptance of self helps us to discover and move through the most difficult of challenges. Acceptance helps us to acknowledge the pain and to release it, in order to move on to the next moment of our lives. Acceptance instead of resistance to ourselves helps to release suffering instead of increasing it. There is nothing that we've done or failed to do that keeps us from receiving forgiveness and forgiving ourselves and if necessary, others.

The key component of the therapeutic relationship that is central for me to establish with my client is a sense of trust and rapport. My experience of a helpful way to establish this is by listening to the story of your life that you choose to reveal and for me to respond with acceptance, understanding, compassion, and sensitive questions that help you discover yourself.

As I grew in my own personal and professional life, another opportunity or what I call the "piece of the puzzle" of the multifaceted complexities that make us human would come to my attention. At the same time, a course, or certification process would arise to address this part of our human life. Psychotherapy isn't a bunch of "techniques" to apply like you'd choose when looking for a computer software program. A person is a living being: body, mind, intellect, emotions, feelings, and soul. Therapy is the exploration of these areas and the practice of having all the parts of the self-working together.
