My Approach to Helping
Is your life on a satisfying path? Are your relationships working the way you want them to? Do you take good care of yourself? Through compassionate listening, searching questions and practical ideas, together we can get you heading in the right direction. We can reduce pain and anxiety, clarify your choices, examine the forces that drive you, and help make your relationships more fulfilling.
More Info About My Practice
I work a lot with stepfamilies and co-parents in my practice. My goal with co-parents is to encourage cooperation, teach respectful communication and negotiation skills, keep children's needs foremost, and avoid court when possible.
I also help couples with Decision Counseling; couples who are confused about the future of their relationship, to clarify their best possible choice.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
I always ask clients about previous therapy experiences. This is important so that we identify what worked or did not work in the past for clients; in this way we gain clues in order to avoid certain errors and to provide what clients need.
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
This relationship is the most crucial element for establishing your comfort-level and growth. You can expect me to attune to your needs, to be respectful and non-hierarchical, and to discuss whether the work seems helpful or not. We may redirect the work at any point to reflect your needs. I feel honored to share in the tougher challenges of your life and to dedicate myself to your growth and well-being.
