My Approach to Helping
Both acceptance and change are often challenging processes. I endeavor to offer an environment that is collaborative, supportive and respectful, and in which you can completely explore your challenges, values and concerns. I honor the humanistic principles that people are most effectively helped by a therapist who is present psychologically and facilitates a therapeutic setting that is authentic, accepting and empathic.
I employ what is typically denoted to as an "integrated" approach to the process of therapy. Within this context, the term integrated refers to using therapy structure, theory and general techniques and strategies from an array of diverse therapeutic sources including behavioral, process-experiential, cognitive, sensorimotor, and acceptance/mindfulness-based approaches. Clearly, no single approach, technique or strategy is a good fit for everyone therefore it only makes sense that we customize the therapy to your personal needs in a collaborative manner.
