I believe that the ultimate goal of therapy is "to heal" which means "to make whole." My 20 years of experience have taught me to trust the meandering of the psyche and one's need to be heard and safe. So my way of working is quite simple. I like to start with what is present and experienced as a challenge. Then as the story unfolds, I look for patterns, themes that potentially influence your thinking, behaviors and beliefs about yourself, others and about life. In recovering one's own authority, one finds the resources and courage to take actions.
