Psychotherapy is based on the idea that we repress events and thoughts in our lives which make us unhappy or uncomfortable and that these repressions poison our behavior. Talking, going back and airing these repressions, therefore, renders them harmless. If this were true, then therapists would have the happiest lives, lowest divorce rates, and most well adjusted children. They don't! I do not believe this works and do not do it. I also do not label my clients with codes or numbers--surely a dehumanizing act which makes therapy more difficult.

Psychotherapy is a process towards growth and change. I use several techniques to help my clients recognize what is happening inside of them, where it is stemming from, and find a new way of being in the world and with themselves. This process involves having new experiences which lead to exploration within a safe relationship. I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is as important as working on the problem. I help my clients develop skills to relate with themselves and others in a different, compassionate, and kind way.
