Therapy Process

I will work with you to gain greater awareness of how you see and act in the world and insight into the patterns you repeat in your life that don’t support your goals and dreams. Exploring with you both your past and present relationships with others (current/past intimate relationships, parental and sibling relationships, friendships, and other significant life relationships) as well as the internal relationship you have with yourself. Ultimately, I will work with you to integrate what you think, say, and do.

I work collaboratively and compassionately with you to clarify your goals for therapy. I provide a supportive environment where you will not be judged but encouraged and understood. Whatever difficulties you are experiencing – relationship and intimacy difficulties, sexual concerns, frustrations, challenges, or anything that is making you feel stuck. I will work with you with compassion and acceptance to break destructive patterns, overcome overwhelming feelings of guilt or shame. My compassion, life experience, and encouraging and positive attitude will help you feel comfortable sharing all aspects of yourself whether, it be through angst, tears, or laughter.

Sessions are 50 minutes long (10 minutes left in the hour for my own note taking and session preparation). I work with individuals, couples, and conduct support groups as well. Support groups are 1hour and 30 minutes with a lower fee. In a group, participants learn from each other and this can be a great accompaniment to individual counseling.
