My Approach to Helping
Therapy works when it allows us to gently and safely examine the very things we would most like to avoid and, because of this, I believe the most important component to a good and productive therapeutic experience is the relationship between client and therapist. I cultivate a safe and nurturing environment that promotes growth and will help you as you work to restore, heal, and transform through the most challenging moments in life.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of my clients therapeutic process. The work requires honesty and bravery. As individuals go through life they build defenses to help them cope with experiences and feelings that are too challenging for them to confront. While this works for a while, eventually there is a build up and things come out in ways we don't understand or can't control. While it can be frightening to shine a light on these issues, once we do we can release them of their power and put ourselves on a healthier and happier course.
