My Approach to Helping
My professional work is founded on the belief that all people, regardless of age or circumstance, have the capacity to learn and grow and to enhance their personal well-being. As a therapist, I partner with my clients as we explore present difficulties or past traumas. Through a supportive therapeutic process, my clients discover and build upon their own inner strengths and resources, which they learn to rely upon outside of therapy in their daily lives. I work with people of all ages around stress, trauma, life transition, relationship issues, parenting problems, depression, anxiety, and grief and loss.
My professional orientation is rooted in humanistic, and developmental psychological perspectives. My approach combines traditional and alternative techniques that are focused in the "here and now" and at times are experimental taking into account the various ways people express themselves.
As a therapist, I am a perceptive, active listener who provides a warm, safe atmosphere where clients can express their inner life at their own pace.
