All of us struggle at times with overwhelming events: loss, personal tragedies, life transitions, emotional or physical distress and relationship difficulties. Given these challenges, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, stressed out or afflicted by psychological symptoms.
I believe it’s essential to provide a safe, non-judgmental, comfortable environment where we work together to explore the areas in which you are struggling. I provide individualized support based on your goals and aspirations. I utilize a depth psychological framework, along with experiential approaches, such as Focusing, dreamwork, mindfulness or body-based methods of awareness to address problems together. I work well in collaboration with other therapists and modalities. If medication needs to be addressed, or there is adjunctive medical, couple or family work, I find it helpful to work as a team, providing coordinated treatment that is comprehensive and unified.
For some, the work does not stop at symptom reduction but moves into areas focusing on growth. This can include realizing one’s full potential, getting the most out of relationships or spiritual/existential explorations that provide meaning and purpose. Deciding to work on oneself is a truly commendable endeavor. When I first see a person walk through my door, I already have profound respect and appreciation for taking this first step.
