For me, psychotherapy is a mutually guided exploration into your “way of being” in the world in order to find the best possible ways for you to thrive in your relationships, career, and creative expression.
My favorite quote is by Marshall McLuhan who said: I don’t know who discovered water but I doubt it was a fish.
We are all like fish and the way we think, talk, walk, eat, stand, smile – is like the water around us: we cannot perceive it until an experienced someone else mirrors it back to us. Counseling is a safe, collaborative process between you and me to find the most efficient tools to engender your long-lasting happiness, to relieve stress, and help you feel more at ease with who you are and the life you are living. I’m there 100% to support you in pursuing activities and goals that lead to your overall well-being.
Sometimes clients come in with very specific goals to work on; other times we work together to figure out what a client’s goals are. As counseling progresses and a client evolves, his or her goals may evolve also. Because each person has different goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. In general, you can expect to discuss what’s currently happening in your life and how you would like to move forward positively.
Over the past 30 years, I have studied countless healing modalities in Europe, Asia and America and I share those tools with clients to help them combat whatever is troubling them. My clients learn effective strategies and skills to be able to handle all of life’s challenges.
For your added convenience, in addition to normal 9-6 weekday office hours I see clients on Sundays 10-3 and Tuesday evenings.
