My primary focus is rooted in the belief that identifying strengths and resiliencies are key components to working effectively in the therapeutic format. We will stay focused on using these abilities to inform decision making while also exploring the impact of personal challenges. I like to use curiosity, intuition and empathic insight to continually deepen our therapeutic connection, and to offer homework to keep the work alive during the week. Working in this dynamic style ideally creates an increased sense of Self, motivation for change, and a reduction of current problematic symptoms.

Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we feel we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to depression, trauma, or relationship upheaval we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and power. Our ability to rediscover these buried treasures can be the key to healing, satisfaction, empowerment, self-trust and most of all--abundant choice.

The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
