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.

As a pastoral psychotherapist, I work with people on the issues that are important to them including their spirituality. I employ different modes of therapy to meet the needs of the client within a safe, empathetic relationship. We will work on present day issues that are troubling to the client as well as explore the places in the past that are still painful--all at the pace and timing of the client.

Are you ready to take things to a deeper level to heal from emotional pain and to experience lasting change? Sharing our struggles with another person while receiving support and encouragement can be a solid beginning to the healing process. Once greater trust and rapport is established, we can begin to face things at a deep emotional level to see where you have the most trouble and where the core pain lies. Once we can see, we have the choice to face. This takes courage and committment from both of us, but it can be done.
