My Therapeutic Approach

The hardest part about therapy is finding the right therapist.  I know, I’ve had to do it.  Will our personalities work well together?  Will you like my style of communication?  You cannot know that by merely reading what I write in blogs or in my webpage so I’m developing some videos to allow you to see who I am and get a sense of whether we will click.  Seeing is believing and the first step in trusting.

On a technical level, I develop personalized strategies and use new, cutting edge Neuroscience research-based techniques to support you on your journey towards fulfillment, connection, and happiness. I help you explore maladaptive patterns and behaviors and implement change to make you more adaptable and successful in life and in relationships.  But in simple terms, I help you feel better about yourself, your life and your circumstances right away and that’s what really matters technical jargon aside.  I’m down to earth, practical and yes, I say it like it is.  I will come right out and tell you the truth about your circumstances and behavior that must change. But at the same time, I give you tools you can start using right away to get back on track.

Over my nearly 30 years as a clinician, I have worked with thousands of individuals, families and children in hospital and outpatient settings.  I have helped people in crisis, couples facing divorce and those who were suffering from trauma and deep despair.  I have seen most all types of suffering and pain.  My decades of experience as a counselor and supervisor have equipped me with the skills to help clients set achievable goals and effectively manage life crises, transitions and struggles.  I know it feels overwhelming to you now, but trust me, together we will get through this and you will be fine.  No one has ever been too far gone or a lost cause.  If you are motivated to change you can.  I’m not the type of therapist that you show up weekly and complain about how terrible everything is.  I am more demanding and focused on HOW you can change your circumstances and that you have a CHOICE to continue to make mistakes and suffer, or dig deep with support and change your life.

I care deeply about your success and I’m dedicated to helping you develop internal strengths, happiness and success so that you experience a more complete and fulfilling life. Together we will identify patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving and communicating that no longer work and to replace them with healthier patterns.  All along the way you have choices and options.  It’s really as simple as that.  Email me to get on my wait list.
