About the practice
Beginning individual therapy is a journey of healing, through honestly examining yourself. It is a process of learning to trust another person with all your darkest parts, secrets and deepest longings. It is a place where you can feel understood, listened to, respected and cared for. Couples therapy is usually considered after coming into contact with a hurtful pattern in the relationship. It will require learning new ways to relate to each other that are healthier and likely more compassionate in nature. Couples work can be a last resort for many, and also a wonderful opportunity to learn about yourself, your needs and how you both contribute to stuck or unhealthy dynamics with your partner. My Style I am highly patient-centered in my practice with couples and individuals. This means my style is very different depending on what each patient or each couple needs. Overall, I am engaged and compassionate. I want to know what helps and what doesn't help. My goal is to support you in finding your own inner voice and a sense of home within yourself. I find it helpful to bring in appropriate resources- stress managment techniques, alternate forms of healing and may suggest supplemental classes, exercises or outside professional consulting to manage various kinds of physical, emotional or spiritual concerns. There are many issues that may appear to be strictly emotional or physical at first look, and many times, when taking a depth inventory, we find they are interconnected. Treating all parts of a person is much more effective and by doing so, many patients find a more full sense of relief from different kinds of suffering. Individually, when it feels right, I find it helpful to talk about our relationship. For many of my patients, this brings up new experiences of being understood on a deep level that might feel unfamiliar yet very fulfilling- and many emotional needs that have gone unmet for a lifetime can finally be seen, understood, validated and nourished.
