MY PSYCHOTHERAPY PRACTICE
My mother says that when I was a little girl, I would break into tears when I heard about other people suffering. I strongly feel that my mission, my passion in life is to do anything I can to reduce suffering.
If you are visiting my site, you are probably suffering. You may be sad, anxious, crying a lot. Maybe you feel confused or frustrated or just plain stuck. It doesn't have to be this way. Honest. I have personally grown a lot in my life and I have had the good fortune of being a witness to other people's changes.
Do you feel that therapy could be helpful but you don't want to be in it forever? Long-term therapy certainly has its place. But most people who see me achieve their goals in ten meetings or less.
HOW I APPROACH MY WORK
I firmly believe that the secret to successful therapy is the establishment of a good relationship with the people who come to see me. I am a warm, caring, and very experiened therapist.
I'd like to encourage you to give me a call so we can explore the possibility of working together.
If we decide to meet, I'll ask you what you would like to see different at the end of our work. I see myself as a facilitator of your change process. How I do this is by bringing my many years of experience and training from working with all kinds of people. But even more importat is my genuine caring, support, my ability to provide a safe space.
I am very nonjudgemental and accepting of a variety of lifestyles, genders, and sexual orientations.
How I can help you in this process
I can help you find solutions that work for you.
I can provide you with support and a "yes you can do this" attitude.
- I can bring in a fresh perspective.
I look forward to talking with you to see if I'm the right therapist for you.
