About My Clients
I help adults and couples with addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship problems, conflict, and the need for reconciliation.
My Background and Approach
I tend to be more interactive than many counselors and strive to be clear and direct, down-to-earth and practical. I’ve done this so long, I’ve developed my own personal approach to psychotherapy drawing on a number of techniques, including Narrative , Cognitive Behavioral, Internal Family Systems, Motivational Enhancement, Solution Focused, Neuro-Linguistic, Existential, and Client Centered Therapy, among others, selecting from each as it seems appropriate. However, I have found that techniques are not as important as the working alliance that the counselor and the client build together. I strive to create a private, non-judgmental environment that feels like a natural, normal conversation, but turns out to be like no other conversation you’ve ever had. After each session, I write a summary of it to share with you. I will invite you to give me feedback as we go along so that I can alter my approach to make our sessions more effective in achieving your goals.
