My Approach to Helping
Psychotherapy is not only about relieving mental distress. It is also about increasing resilience, wholeness, wellness, and improving relationships. I believe the therapist’s job is to offer a safe place for healing – a place where an individual, couple or family can be listened to with skill and respect. In the process of establishing a safe relationship and setting realistic goals, people grow and change according to their abilities and needs. People are the “experts” of their own lives. I believe in the interdependence of the generations in families and in the human community. I specialize in working with those who wish to improve relationships with themselves and others, who are recovering from loss, who are in psychological pain, who may be caring for a family member, or who are trying to cope with change and transition in their life cycle. I have worked with many therapists and caregivers seeking treatment. I am available for free, brief phone consultation to evaluate if I am appropriate for your needs andor to refer you to other resources.
