I have learned after two and a half decades of practice, countless trainings and workshops that what appears to matter most to the people I work with is the sense that I am vitally, compassionately, and nonjudgmentally present in the therapeutic relationship. Among the many skills I've acquired, I consider deep empathic listening and reflection to hold the greatest value. I also make judicious, thoughtful use of other techniques founded in my understanding of cognitive, mindfulness, psychoanalytic, and systemic modalities of counseling.
