Many of the most important elements that shape our lives are not under our control; the families and situation we are born into, our strengths and weaknesses, and many of the challenging events that affect our sense of well-being. My work with people in therapy is about learning to navigate life to optimize satisfaction, growth and power, and to minimize unnecessary suffering.
I hope to provide my clients with a supportive, welcoming atmosphere in which to work. I draw from a number of theoretical backgrounds, responding to the specific needs of the client. The therapeutic relationship is an important element of effective therapy; I value these relationships enormously and strive to honor them with my respect, attention and authenticity.
