My Approach to Helping
I believe (as data confirms) that the most important aspect of any helping relationship is the relationship.
I find that understanding how the brain works and sharing that with clients is empowering no matter what specific theory or approach is the best fit for a client. Currently much of this information comes from the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology and Mindfulness.
As a teacher in a graduate level program for other therapist, as well as a supervisor with an ongoing mindfulness based group with my peers, I both teach and incorporate the belief that all transitions are a collaborative process.
I am grateful to be part of a profession that is its self in such transition of inclusion to so many ways of knowing. It makes me smile on a daily basis. I am glad to share this energizing curiosity with anyone who is seeking help with feeling stuck, angry, fearful or lost.
