"I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative experience, and we participate in a journey together. By observing and reflecting upon what occurs between us, we are able to examine and work through deep conflict that may occur in your life outside of therapy. We all have strengths that we may lose sight of on the journey. You are at a crossroad and the choice to seek therapy is evidence of a strong indication of your desire to heal and grow."

"Whenever I "close" during the final session with my clients, I always survey them and ask for feedback about what "worked" and "didn't work" for them about me as their therapist. I primarily get the responses such as "you were a full participant", "You gave a lot of feedback", "You were really present". So I would say that I am a very "active" therapist. I don't simply mirror back what you've said to me. I believe the process is collaborative and exploratory in nature; and, I give LOTS of feedback!"
