My Approach to Helping

All clients have different goals. Some want to feel more alive, free from anxiety or depression, some want to find a loving partner, while some want more meaning and purpose in life. But these goals mean different things to different people. “Feeling more alive” means one thing to one and something quite different to another.

Consequently, effective therapy should never be standardized or take a “one size fits all” approach. To be truly life changing it must be tailored to the goals and needs of each client. From understanding the meaning of “feeling more alive,” to exploring what self-constructed restrictions might be blocking its attainment, my purpose is to honor the uniqueness of each client.

The cornerstone of my approach is cultivating empathic presence and sensitive attunement. These qualities encourage clients to feel safe, accepted and understood. My years of experience bringing both of these elements to my work have proven their ability to ensure successful therapeutic outcomes.

My goal as an educator is to help therapists learn these effective principles of therapy practice: sensitive presence to intra and interpersonal processes and empathic attunement and responsiveness to feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Mastering these principles cultivates curiosity, compassion, and effective interventions that result in lasting healing and change as opposed to learning standardized protocols that treat a diagnosis.
