I am glad you are taking a minute to read this so that you can make an informed decision. The type of therapy that I provide is called cognitive-behavioral (CBT). That means that I attend first to thoughts and behaviors and how they influence emotions and overall well-being. CBT offers a number of strategies, including teaching new behavioral skills to promote change in the direction of one's long term goals. I am especially interested in strategies demonstrated by research to be effective, this includes DBT and EMDR. Therapy will focus on bringing forth your best self.
An additional focus is interpersonal. Fulfilled people are in touch with themselves and are interpersonally effective. They speak and act compassionately on their truths and are able to fully give and receive love. I will help you learn to express yourself, to grieve losses, and to create better relationships.
I consider our work together to be sacred-and would be privileged to embark on this path of exploration and growth with you. I will be a genuine person in the room with you, and my main guiding principle is to do that which is in your best interest.
