"Choosing a therapist can be a confusing process. Research has shown that the relationship between the therapist and client is the most important indicator of a successful outcome, more so than the therapist's type of professional degree or theoretical orientation. You need a therapist who will create a supportive atmosphere, but also one in which you will be gently challenged to think about your problems in a new and more adaptive manner. I will offer a compassionate and intelligent response to your concerns."

"Your potential is much greater than you even think. But psychological burdens -- such as depression, loneliness, guilt, and anxiety -- rob you of the freedom to feel, act, and choose. Self-protective strategies left over from childhood, ingrained but faulty ideas, and an absence of self-acceptance make life very, very difficult. How we work together will depend on what you want and what you need. Cognitive-behavioral techniques can be very valuable. But for many people, the path includes uncovering buried emotions, giving the "true self" a chance to emerge. Our closeness gives you the courage you'll need."
