Psychotherapy is a relationship between the client and therapist based on trust and a shared sense of hope. In this joint undertaking we listen to each other. I help the client learn how to use an internal sense of silence to help still past and present distractions that keep the client from living in the present. The ultimate goal of psychotherapy is freedom -- to be able to determine new paths by dropping attachments to emotions and behaviors that may have been helpful in the past, but are hinderances now. As therapist, I use a variety of techniques to help the client learn how to be calm, focused on the present moment, and receptive to the possibilities life offers.
