My Approach to Helping
Have you tried traditional talk therapy and you're still struggling with the same problems? Why cope with a problem if you can heal it at its core? My strength is in helping people discover and heal the true root causes of their issues. These may be hidden and not obvious, yet they may still affect you everyday. My goal is your transformation. I don't want you to leave my care and have to talk to another therapist about the same problems.
Your troubling feelings, thoughts and behaviors likely stem from your past experiences. From these experiences, you developed patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. I'll help you work backwards, from your current troubles to their source. I'll then guide you to use highly innovative techniques to heal what we discover - the troubling memories and unhelpful patterns.
The tools I use enable people to neutralize even highly traumatic memories. The memories remain, but they feel more distant and no longer trigger the same painful reactions. Your patterns of thinking and behaving can be healed with the same techniques. The process is gentle and strengthening and my expectation is that you'll experience positive shifts during our sessions. Plus, you'll learn to use these healing techniques on your own so you'll gain invaluable lifelong skills.
Many people put off starting therapy. They imagine it's going to be uncomfortable to discuss their problems and their painful past. If you relate to this, we can start there and heal any fear or shame that may be blocking you from getting the help you deserve. I always aim to be kind, causal and nonjudgmental right from the initial meeting.
