"Straight-forward honest therapy. No therapy gameplaying. Therapy starts with a mutual commitment to work together with honesty and trust. I work with you as a real person, who has a positive sensitivity, intelligence, insight, skill, and caring that can help you do the work you need do. I will not try to fit you and your life and experiences into particular theories about who you should be. Making it work for you is my goal in therapy. We won't try to fit you and your experiences into some neat theory, but will seek to find the logic of your life and how you came to be the person you are- and be in the relationships you are in."
