I provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, children and families. My therapeutic approach is warm and down-to-earth. My practice is based on three basic ideas:
Each of us has the capacity to grow, change and heal.
Who we are and how we relate to others is formed early on. When we come to understand what we believe to be true about ourselves, we realize that these beliefs stem from the ways we have been valued or dismissed in our most important relationships. Challenging these beliefs makes change possible.
Therapy allows us to be actively involved in the process of bridging old ways of relating with new ones. The therapist/client relationship focuses on the client's experience of the world while looking into ways to challenge unhelpful patterns. Through a supportive therapeutic relationship, we are able to strengthen and enhance our sense of self and our relationships with others.
