Out cultural institutions do not prepare us for the diversity of experience we face as adults. Conformity to outdated rules of thinking and acting do not work in situations that invite flexibility and adaptiveness. Rigid thinking patterns are maladaptive and lead to frustration, stress, and depression. We are led to believe we "should" be able to solve problems through mastery of our behavior and feelings, but it's just that demand to control things that leads to a identity. confusion. Therapy is not education: I don't work from a lesson plan that has all the right answers. We will work your story 'till it makes sense.
In addition to a therapy practice, I am a clinical supervisor for therapists wishing to improve skills and those who are on probation with BBS. For public safety, BBS requires supervision of probationer's work, and I've been accepted to act in that capacity. The requirements of a supervisor are rigorous, and I've successfully navigated those waters.
To patients or therapists, I am dedicated to exploring your needs and forming a relationship to address them.
