My Approach to Helping

Good therapy is about growing one's capacity to live a life that is meaningful and satisfying. It is liberating. You see choices and possibilities you could not see before or seemed beyond your grasp. Clarity about what is deeply and personally important to you guides you. Obstacles to living the meaningful life are dealt with. You leave changed in ways that continue to expand and grow long after therapy has ended.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in helping people who have experienced significant and ongoing physical, sexual and/or emotional trauma in their childhood and later years. I work very hard developing and refining the specialized skills required to work with such sensitive and painful experience. Paramount is cultivating a kind, supportive and non-judgmental environment in which the person can safely learn to deal with flashbacks, traumatic memories, inexplicable black moods, and toxic inner voices that wear down resilience and self-esteem. Understanding and changing how these experiences are influencing the persons ability to live a vital life is the primary focus of the work. I have trained in Lifespan Integration, EMDR, and Dissociation and Complex Trauma. I am a member of the International Association for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation and the International Association of Trauma Professionals.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

The purpose of psychotherapy is to help people live a full, rich and meaningful life. What that life is is as varied as the people themselves. Each person creates their vision of the life worth having and determines the values and goals that they want to embody and accomplish in creating that life. Psychotherapy helps people free themselves from the invisible chains that narrow their choices and limit their ability to take advantage of the full range of possibilities that life offers. At its best it frees the spirit and feeds the soul.
