Trauma can make you feel like someone has robbed you of your innocence, purpose, sense of belonging, your voice, and ability to feel safe in your own body. You might be searching for a sense of control, but feeling completely powerless. You escape into activities or relationships in order to feel anything at all and other times to make the feelings stop all together. You may have developed parts of yourself in order to survive, but what would life look like if you could shed old scripts and truly live a life that’s worth living?

I provide a supportive, empathic, and hopeful environment. I encourage my clients to be open-minded and honest while approaching their sensitive personal challenges, guiding them in understanding why past efforts at addressing these challenges may have been ineffective. We (me and the client) then develop alternative goal-directed and client-centered solutions. I recognize that successful therapy requires collaborative goal setting. Your participation in setting goals allows for a more willing exploration of the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that guide both current and past choices. This engenders the type of change that is both true and sustainable. Lasting change rarely happens quickly, but is a process that often begins through gaining perspective on past choices. Such understanding often provides insight and wisdom for future choices, resulting in positive transformations

In over 35 years as a therapist and in writing my national column for 55,000 therapists about the latest ideas and research in therapy, I'm still convinced that good therapy comes down to this: listening as carefully as I can, trying to understand your world through your eyes, then using my knowledge and both our perspectives to help meet your goals, face your fears, grow and begin a process of learning that continues long after therapy's over. Everyone wants to connect; it begins with the first phone call in therapy and then continues outside my office.
