I take a humanistic approach to working with clients. Through listening deeply, I enter their experience and perceptions, leaving out my own thoughts, feelings, and interpretations so I can better understand their reality; how life is for them.
I take a stand in support of them — being there for them through non-judgmental empathy, compassion, and understanding. I am present and bring all of my knowledge and experience in helping them gain awareness and undergo profound shifts in the way they think, feel, act and find meaning in their relationships and life.
I am collaborative, experiential and directive. I do not analyze, chitchat, or take notes. I provide answers to difficult questions and serve as a guide through the process of healing, and helping to uncover who people really are. They part with clarity, tools, and new perspectives to lead empowered, fulfilled and authentic lives. Ultimately, they get their value and worth and know that they're here - because they belong here.
As a psychotherapist and founder of a personal growth organization, I believe that when we have a willingness to grow and the courage for self-inquiry, we can begin to lead authentic lives and become the people we were meant to be.
Bottom Line: I believe that we can create the closeness and connection we seek when we are willing to be vulnerable. I do NOT believe that intelligence equates to emotional maturity. And I firmly believe that our purpose in life is - to practice unconditional love and acceptance for ourselves and others.
