My style is casual and egalitarian. We are equals working together to improve the quality of your experience of being alive. In my lucid moments, I am powerfully aware that the causes of our suffering are not our circumstances, but rather how we perceive them and relate to them. Fortunately, these are things we CAN change. Thus my aim as a therapist is to help you change your moment-to-moment APPROACH to being alive, rather than trying to "fix" your circumstances. I find that if we truly change our WAY of being, our circumstances naturally change along with us.
I aim to keep you focused on what you are feeling and aware of RIGHT NOW -- which is often the very stuff that you are tempted to habitually resist or avoid. I see myself as a coach for helping you become stronger at being courageously honest and PRESENT to life.
I have a spiritual (not religious) approach to life. I am critical of our society's tendency to support us in avoiding ourselves through addictions, "entertainment," materialism, etc. I see good therapy as one antidote to the madness of our culture. (BTW, I have several canine co-therapists.)
