"I believe that a successful therapeutic relationship is based on careful listening and honest feedback. I help clients cultivate authentic relationships in their lives; both with themselves and others. I work collaboratively with clients to identify and achieve their goals by meeting them where they are in the present moment. When you experience being criticized, or feel unimportant, misunderstood, unappreciated or unloved, the fight or flight response is activated, and you instinctually react to protect yourself. "

Rather, the two person model attempts to understand the client through questions and mutual discussion. I am not a silent therapist. I give feedback and remain fully engaged with the patient.
