My approach to therapy, and its length, depends on your particular needs and goals. I have an eclectic approach that I tailor to each client’s specific needs, including, but not limited to: client-centered, insight-oriented, cognitive behavioral, existential, psychodynamic, humanistic, emotionally-focused, somatic, attachment, and integrated systems therapies.

Most importantly, though… I begin by being available for a genuine relationship with you based on trust, and unconditional positive regard. From that place, I will explore with you your relationship with your family of origin, other significant relationship stories, and any past traumas, to increase my understanding of where you’ve been hurt, and where your strengths and adaptations lie.

We will continue to work together to help you understand the links between these experiences and current life struggles, and will utilize potent strategies to heal old hurts and develop new ways of holding old pain. We will uncover thought and behavior habits that are creating distress, and will utilize new strategies that you help you untie old knots and consciously think and act on your own behalf.

I will follow your lead to sense which approach is most helpful for you as we work together. My job is to help you discover and process difficult feelings, and to increase your coping skills and your ability to care for yourself with the challenges you face.
