Good psychotherapy requires listening, understanding, and eventual effective interpretation on the part of the therapist, and the willingness to work toward change on the part of the patient. It does not call for a "God-like" knowledge by the therapist, but for a collaboration by therapist and patient in moving towards more functional living.

I provide a safe environment for you to share your story, address the challenges you are facing, and explore your hurts, hopes, and dreams. My approach to working with you includes a combination of psychodynamic, existential, and attachment-based concepts. I believe your history is important and we take time to address and understand how it has impacted you. We will look at how the person you are today is working for you and address areas that keep you from reaching your current goals. I also want to know how your past affects your ability to be in relationship with others. I will walk alongside you through this journey of healing and personal growth.

Sometimes the harder try to connect, the more distant and lonely you end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective strategies, because what else can you do? Or maybe you give up. You are probably spending enough time and effort already trying to make it work — you’re just doing it in the wrong way. I can help you channel your efforts more successfully using emotionally focused therapy (EFT).

In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, we look at the underlying concept, which is that your thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in your behavior. For example, if you spend a lot of time thinking about plane crashes, runway accidents, and other air disasters, you may find yourself avoiding air travel. The goal of cognitive behavior therapy is to teach you that while you cannot control every aspect of the world around you, you can take control of how you interpret and deal with things in your environment.

Finding the right therapist is vital to the growth and healing of the individual. My goal is to uncover what my clients need and find ways to help them activate this within session and within their lives. I am very active, encouraging, using humor and stories or videos to help them reframe the areas were they are stuck or confused. My goal is to help them see that the tapes that they believe are no longer helping them and to give them the freedom to see themself with new eyes.

There are many approaches to therapy and many clinical terms that you may see when looking for counseling. In my experience, and in the research available to us today, it is the client and therapist relationship that is most responsible for a successful outcome. To that end, I appreciate spending some initial time with my clients to understand their needs and goals and to establish a strong alliance for our work. From there, I employ a variety of tools and methods to support those goals, tailoring our work to each client's specific needs.
