About My Clients
Sometimes we need someone trustworthy, who will listen attentively without judgement or reproach, and reflect what they hear with honestly and with care, who will stay steady when we are mired in the eddies of our emotions, and help us make sense of our histories and lives. Sometimes we need someone to bear witness to our suffering, our sorrow and our longing, to feel the nuance and mystery of who we are and have become, and to help forge the path forward.
My Background and Approach
Through my own life experiences, I have gained a profound regard for persons who have experienced tragedy, loss or hardship and a sensitive understanding of the many challenges they may encounter in their lives. One of my strengths as a therapist is an ability to convey this respect and understanding and create an atmosphere in which even persons uncertain about or mistrustful of therapy can begin to safely explore their emotional and psychological lives. I have found that accompanying my clients in this process, and creating a reparative experience of relatedness, often provides them with a broader sense of possibility for their lives, which can be in itself tremendously healing.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
When approached with commitment and care, psychotherapy can be profoundly reparative and life-altering. It can help you navigate times of uncertainty, discover what most nourishes and sustains your well-being and deepen your experience of yourself, your life and your relationships with others. It can also help you recover from the aftermaths of trauma and abuse, cope with hardship and live your life with more hopefulness, open-heartedness and ease.
