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.

My first task in psychotherapy is to provide a safe and secure environment. I provide my clients with care, calmness, respect and stability to help address life challenges in new ways. Being non-judgmental, open-minded, empathetic and listening with respect helps set the stage for the deeper work that needs to be done. I help my clients evaluate whether their present life choices are providing what he or she wants. I also help my clients become aware of and transform the mental, emotional, interpersonal and/or behavioral strategies that cause his/her suffering. My approach to psychotherapy is to help clients become what he/she wants to become, to be better equipped to deal with life’s challenges, and to be in a greater state of health and harmony.

Psychotherapy is sacred work, and I hold a very safe and honest space for people to show up authentically. I use different modalities, but the most important factor is to have deep compassion and let the person know you care. Humor is essential, and there is as much laughing as crying in my office. I have been doing this work for nearly 30 years, and I am still in awe of the capacity people have to change.

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!

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

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.

It takes courage to begin the psychotherapy process but most people feel a sense of relief and understanding after the first session or two in my office. My goal is to create a safe and respectful environment for people to work on their goals. I will utilize any strategies that I am trained to use and believe will help you with your issues. Most often I use both insight oriented and cognitive strategies. Psychotherapy helps clients identify patterns and experiences that have shaped their life and gives them the tools to get past the dysfunctional patterns and/or painful experiences. Clients learn to be more accepting of themselves and to see their strengths .

Here's what it comes down to: We all bump/hit/slam into obstacles that hold us back from creating meaningful, vibrant lives. And we all need effective help sometimes. What makes therapy the most effective? (1) The quality of the connection and trust you have with your therapist, and (2) your therapist's level of experience. Helping people get traction to get beyond those obstacles is what I've been doing for more than 20 years, and it's what I love to do. I bring together different approaches to suit your needs, and I’m compassionate, straightforward, and authentic. Let's find out if we'll work well together.
