My Approach to Therapy

Throughout our life we are affected by many important relationships and events, some of which make us strong and confident, but some leave us with a great deal of hurt, helplessness, anger and confusion. In my work with you I will provide compassionate, sensitive support as we explore solutions to the individual and relationship issues and challenges that are facing you in your life. I seek to create a safe, trusting and confidential environment in which you feel comfortable, secure and understood, giving you space to focus your attention on your most honest emotional experience without being swept-up by judgments, fears and expectations.

My goal is to help you discover a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself and your strengths, as well as knowledge and skills for continuing growth. I work with you as you heal, grow and find your way to greater balance, direction and empowerment in your life and in your relationships.
