What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I bring expertise in working with adults and adolescents on a variety of anxiety concerns, depression, and grief which can relate to losses of many kinds such as death, divorce or separation, career, and physical ability. I work with couples who want to resolve conflict, improve communication and intimacy, deal with infidelity, learn how to argue, and better understand one another.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach is holistic with attention to the mental /emotional self, the physical self, and the spiritual self. I am accepting, validating and encouraging. I engage with a solution focused, positively oriented work style. I also find looking at meaning and purpose supports resolution of some concerns.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

The most important component is the relationship between the client and myself. Research has found that when the relationship is strong positive outcomes result. I provide genuine support and respect with a thorough understanding of concerns. I have been successful in finding paths for improvement.
