My approach to therapy

I trust in the inherent ability of every individual to find their own answers. My role as a therapist is as facilitator and guide.  During times of struggle or uncertainty, we often need someone who can ask the questions and provide the space for the inner answers to be found and someone to provide support and encouragement as the first steps on a new path are taken. The questions I ask and the space I provide are based on my training and extensive experience working with attachment issues, trauma, grief and loss, behavioral issues, depression and anxiety.  My work integrates relationship-based and cognitive-behavioral approaches. I believe there is great interplay between what we have experienced in relationships and how we think and feel about ourselves and others. We create emotional pathways that can become so well-worn that we don't even realize there are other options.  Therapy is about discovering the other options and learning to take new routes in response to our struggles.
