My approach to psychotherapy is psychodynamic, which means I look to a person’s past and current relationships as well as internal struggles to help me understand his/her life situation. Therapy clients typically come to sessions once or twice per week. Clients of mine have sought therapy for various reasons, some of which relate to the following:
*** adjustment to significant life transitions, such as finishing college or retirement
I provide a safe, comfortable space for clients to discuss their feelings, explore their relationships, and work on problem issues. Sessions are confidential. My approach is supportive and non-judgmental, with a focus on listening, understanding, and problem-solving. I see therapy as a discovery process, where both participants actively work together toward common client goals. These goals typically include self-acceptance, relationship fulfillment, and greater empowerment.
