that the goals of therapy are always first and foremost determined by my clients, I generally hold the hope for each of them that they will find more joy in life. To that end, I believe in an eclectic theoretical approach, one that draws on a wide range of perspectives including humanist/existential philosophy, Jungian psychodynamics, trauma-informed and client-centered practice, because I believe people are eclectic.
No one therapeutic approach is more correct than another, they simply describe different aspects of our experience. I seek first to understand what aspects of my client’s psyche are causing them pain, then to help them out of their pain in whatever way will be most effective for them, and finally to help them find meaning in their painful experiences.
In addition to my education, I have been taught through my work with children and adults of all ages who have experienced relationship issues, dysfunctional family dynamics, trauma, addiction, personality disorders, depression and anxiety.
I am deeply passionate about my work and hope that I get the opportunity to share what I’ve learned and to grow from my experience with you.
