I know life’s journey can be difficult, and sometimes you need support. I would like to support you in making the changes that are important to you.
My primary goal for therapy is to provide you with a safe space in which to explore whatever is on your mind. I work collaboratively. This means you are the expert in the room, not me. You know your story so far and it’s my goal to listen and understand it to the best of my ability. By working on understanding your experience, I’m able to support you in deepening your understanding of it, and also in changing it moving forward. I use my training to inform my questions and to help expose possible paths forward that may have previously been inaccessible to you.
Having someone else who cares really trying to understand how things are for you may sound like a simple thing, and I suppose it is, but it’s also immensely powerful. Most of us have not had that experience in our relationships, and as a result often feel frustrated, not heard and not connected. By striving to understand how things are for you,
I can offer you a relationship where you are heard, and where you feel connected, and not just connected to a caring therapist, but more and more connected to yourself, by having a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings and make more sense of your story.
This empathically based relationship is the foundation of the work done in the therapy hour and is often enough, by itself, to shift things for the client. It is supported by the theoretical understanding I have of various psychological issues due to my training. Sometimes, theoretical information I can share with clients proves to be very useful for them.
I have also experienced the benefits of psychotherapy as a client. I have worked hard on my own personal growth and I think that allows me to more easily understand and relate to my clients’ experiences.
I treat my clients with care, empathy and respect. I also very much enjoy my work. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you, or just to meet for an initial consultation to help you decide if you would like to work with me.
