I view the therapeutic relationship as the key to the therapy process. I aim to build a trusting, safe, and respectful relationship with each individual which serves as the foundation of our work together.
I use a holistic approach when working with clients, looking at all aspects of the person: biological, psychological, social, spiritual and sexual. My approach to therapy is systemic, meaning we will discuss the different systems in your life (such as family) and how these systems contribute to your overall well-being. I also implement Emotionally Focused Therapy, which focuses on attachment and relationships. I believe that each individual has their own unique set of strengths that we can draw upon to achieve your goals while utilizing these strengths to facilitate the change in your life that you desire.
I provide 50 minute sessions for individuals and 90 minute sessions for couples. I am trained in Gottman Level 1 and Lifespan Integration Level 2. I require a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss what it is that each individual is looking for in a therapist and what they are hoping to gain from therapy, this is a helpful step as well to see if the client is looking to focus solely on LI.
