My Approach to Helping
I take a person centered, eclectic approach. I believe the client is the best expert on their life and it is my role to help them uncover strengths, weaknesses, and obstacles; to remove them if possible and to accept and manage them if not. Therapy is not just a treatment but a part of an overall progression or path each person is on.

My Role as a Therapist
People are generally resilient. I see my role as providing information and guidance, drawing from the various theories and modalities I've been trained in, as appropriate. I can be directive if necessary, but I often find that if people are comfortable enough to explore their own thoughts and feelings, and to express them, they can make significant progress.
