As a therapist, my first and main goal is always to be of help. People come to therapy at times of stress, confusion, or pain. I will listen carefully, with compassion and respect.
Together, we will look closely at the circumstances or problems that are causing distress, or getting in the way of living your life as you would like to. We will begin to envision the change you are hoping for. We will build a collaborative relationship in which your needs are central and primary. I will bring my curiosity, kindness, and expertise. We may explore the past so as to gain a new understanding or a new level of acceptance. Often, we will focus on finding solutions to the present dilemma, practicing new skills, and planning for a brighter future.
It is very important to find the right therapist, one who inspires confidence, yet one with whom you can feel deeply comfortable and fully yourself. Thank you for considering me.
