My Philosophy of Healing

Within the method of the “talking cure,” I listen, reflect, and interpret in an effort to bring awareness to the unconscious implications of what is being said. I hope to create an environment where clients are promoted to problem-solve, cope, and alleviate suffering in addition to making self-discoveries. I hold the client and the therapist equally responsible for the outcome of therapy. It is the therapist’s responsibility to offer a structure which can “contain” what the client brings. It is the client’s responsibility to use the structure to their benefit. The success of your therapy will rest largely on your openness, honesty, active participation and commitment to change.

Psychotherapy can involve remembering unpleasant events and can arouse intense emotions. You may experience various feelings including anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger, and shame. Having these feelings, and talking about them can lead you to desired change.

Theoretical orientations from which I direct my treatment include Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavioral and Rogerian. I also utilize Lifespan Integration, which is an effective treatment for trauma.
