We all face challenges in life. By taking time to face our inner worlds, we may begin to quiet the past and change how we meet the future.
Psychotherapy is one of the most effective ways to facilitate personal change. It can be challenging at times, but in return, therapy offers the possibility of real and lasting change which is my goal with every client.
My work is grounded in interpersonal process and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapies; but over the years, I have been greatly influenced by systems theory, ecotherapy, and mindfulness-based approaches.
Technical jargon aside, what you need to know is that I take a collaborative, mindful and open approach to therapy. I see the client as my partner in exploring his or her unique personal world, and I encourage participation in defining problems and setting goals.
Throughout this process, I remain open about my observations, and I treat clients with respect and dignity. My practice is built on an appreciation for the uniqueness of each individual. As a result, I work very effectively with clients from diverse cultures, lifestyles, and belief systems.
I specialize in helping clients understand and resolve the barriers that prevent them from living happy, healthy lives. These barriers include such things as the following:
- Relationship issues
- Grief and loss
- Adjustment issues
