I believe we are all motivated by wanting to live a happy and fulfilling life. As your therapist, it is my job to help you find the roadblocks and replace them with proactive choices, decisions and skills that will help you enhance your life in ways that meet your goals and heart’s desires.
Therapy should not be an open-ended process with no end in sight.
I always begin the counseling relationship by asking the question, “If we are successful, how will your life be different than it is now?”
I continue to follow your goals with you and work toward keeping us on track. I don’t believe therapy should be an open-ended process with no end in sight. Therapy can and should be exciting and challenging and at times fun, but it should also be goal-oriented. My role is to help you achieve meaningful results.
A therapist’s skill is largely measured by how well he/she fits therapeutic strategies to the client. I have a broad range of skills to draw upon. Which ones I use will vary depending on you, your unique situation and where you are in the counseling process.
These strategies might include self-psychology and object relations, which deal with our important relationships during our most formative years.
We may also draw upon other approaches, including hypnosis, gestalt, energy psychology, body-oriented psychotherapy (Integrative Body Psychotherapy), hypnosis, dreamwork, EFT, meditation and mindfulness, focusing, visualization and more.
I believe it’s possible to create a plan for you that helps improve your quality of life. The path to success involves taking a history, developing a strong and trusting bond between us, getting clear on yourgoals and accommodating your financial considerations and time constraints.
