We first determine what you want to work on. This is not as simple as it sounds, as there are often defenses that have been built up. If so, then we look at those defenses, such as blaming others or considering oneself too worthless to get better. When we can get through the defenses, we can usually make some connections with patterns of behavior, such as self-sabotaging. We work to help you able to make better connections with others and with parts of yourself. I also do intensive work in therapy for people who have suffered from traumas. These traumas have left you stuck. By using an evidence-based therapy called EMDR, we are able to help you get unstuck. You can then stop avoiding life!

My approach to Psychotherapy is eclectic and tailored to each individual. Some clients respond well to cognitive-behavioral approaches (changing beliefs and behaviors), while others prefer creative modalities such as drawing or collaging. I use guided imagery when a person has a tendency to over-analyze things, since it activates the right side of the brain which completely bypasses language. In general though, I use a Strengths-Based model which depathologizes destructive behaviors and reframes them as coping strategies. Clients find it very helpful when they can accept that they are doing the best they can rather than shaming themselves for certain behaviors.

Psychotherapy is a most intense and intimate form of personal relationship--between therapist and client in individual therapy, between family members in couples and family therapy, and between group members in group therapy. My job as the therapist is to nurture and cultivate all of these relationships, as the magical healing that takes place always comes from these relationships. I have spent many years both as a psychotherapist and as a psychotherapy client--these have been the most important part of my preparation as a psychotherapist.
