My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping people is to offer a safe and supportive relationship that will allow you to examine the way you live now and the changes you would like to make for living in the future. Working together at your own pace, we will help you gradually try out and adopt new skills for addressing your concerns, whether they appear in anxiety, mood, relationship difficulties or determining your future life path.

I listen very carefully to what you share to help you gain new perspectives on the things that have led you to be the way you are now and how you can become the person you want to be in the future. And while what we discuss within sessions will be very important we will also think of steps you can take in between sessions as part of the process of change. Finally, aside from your having the courage to make changes in your way of being, we will attempt to determine how to help you sustain the changes that you make.
