Approach

Before discussing my approach, let me first say that the most important factor in therapy is the quality of your relationship with your therapist. A good therapist should feel safe, caring, non-judgmental and be responsive to your feelings and needs. The therapeutic relationship is especially important because many issues that have brought people into therapy often occurred while in relationship with others. And likewise it is in relationship that they are often best healed.

I believe that therapy works best as a collaborative process. I make efforts to ensure that every approach is best suited for your unique personality, life history and personal preferences. During our time together, I will continue to check in with you to see if something is or isn't working for you. You are also welcome and even encouraged to raise concerns with me as well. 

While I draw upon various methods and philosophies, underlying them all is the belief that all human beings are naturally striving toward greater wholeness and healing. Even if our lives do not always appear that way on the surface. This does not mean that we never experience pain, suffering, or sorrow. Because we do. But when we explore our lives in a spirit of compassionate inquiry, we often find that the simple desire for happiness is what lies beneath our sometimes messy life stories. I consider it a privilege and a joy to witness each person's unfolding as you journey towards your life goals, dreams, and self-fulfillment.

I work with a wide range of issues and approaches, including:

- Mindfulness
- Integrative Therapies
- Internal Family Systems
- Visual Imagery 
- Cognitive Behavioral
- Somatic Trauma Therapies
- Jungian-based Process Work 
- Attachment Theory
- Lifespan Integration
