My Approach to Helping
My approach is a supportive, interactive one that aims to help people better understand their thoughts, feelings, and relationships. Ultimately my goal is to establish a collaborative dialogue that offers a safe place to examine current challenges alongside past formative experiences.
We will discuss how to best implement positive, productive changes while comfortably shifting perspective to accept difficult situations. I strive to incorporate a free-flowing exchange and develop a sense of mutual trust through constructive exploration together. I understand the value of sharing personal concerns with someone objective and do not take this responsibility lightly.
My feeling is that therapists ought to sustain curiosity and openness rather than rely on absolutes that may, in fact, limit our potential with confining parameters. Life doesn't always offer tidy resolutions, and it is important to figure out how to remain centered when things seem to be the toughest.
