welcome my clients and strive to create an
atmosphere of acceptance, safety and honesty, as well as utilize
humor to lighten things up at times.
I support setting clear and attainable goals, utilizing
creativity, personal strengths and courage to overcome obstacles.
I focus on oneís behavior, the thoughts and feelings and
beliefs that initiate and sustain the behavior, and the unconscious
patterns of relating that are learned earlier in life.
Life transitions and traumatic events can also interfere with
The therapeutic relationship is at the heart of
change. My job and privilege is to collaborate with my clients to
look at themselves in a clear, in-depth, non-judgmental way. Starting by accepting yourself as you are opens the door to
acknowledge and focus on what needs to be different. It is in this safe context that my clients can agree to risk
doing things differently. My
therapeutic skill serves the purpose of supporting your efforts to
change as well as helping you stand up against your challenges. I believe that insight is an excellent motivator, but growth
comes from insight and action
and can be measured by the quality of our relationships.
I continue to challenge myself to grow and develop to earn
the trust and respect of my friends, family, colleagues and clients.
I work continually on my ability to observe and reflect
clearly, to be courageous and compassionate.
Of course, I also try to be compassionate with myself when I
donít live up to my own expectations.
