Creating a safe environment and atmosphere where you can feel comfortable and at ease is an important first step in our process. Deeply listening so that you feel seen, heard, understood, and respected is foundational in our time together, as well as working collaboratively to help you identify and overcome obstacles to inner calm, peace, and happiness. Finding meaning in our lives, healing, and becoming whole again, as well as thriving (not just surviving) in daily life are examples of potential goals for our time together. Within that framework, we will customize our work to meet and embrace your unique personality and needs.
My theoretical approach is integrative and customized to address each individual client’s life circumstances, needs, and wishes. Client-centered and collaborative, our work together can embrace advanced evidenced-based treatments, as well as explore how the unconscious influences our behavior, with the most important detail being that it all works for you.
When someone offers the unique gift of truly listening, our joy is enhanced and our pain is reduced. A compassionate listener can join you in the celebration of the joyful in your life, but more importantly, that same empathic listener can help unburden you by attuning to your internal life and helping to carry the weighty load of your struggle and pain.
