Treatment Philosophy

In my graduate study, I was trained in “Third Force” psychology, with its emphasis on meaning, personal choice, and motivation. My gift as a therapist is that I see the best in people. I reflect back to my clients their unique strengths, gifts and beauty. My education and experience have helped me to develop many skills for that, but to me, good therapy is about connection and trust. Many people come to therapy because they have either forgotten how to connect with their inner sense of self, identity and wholeness, or they have had painful experiences with others which have injured their trust and their ability to connect. Therapy is a process of relearning skills and experiencing a safe relationship while rediscovering the part of themselves that is healthy, and knows how to be happy and whole.

THERAPISTS ON COUCHES SIPPING TEA


I have also studied and practiced massage therapy, and have keen interest in wellness, and the mind body connection as both an athlete and a clinician. Although I do not utilize touch in my practice as a psychotherapist due to the ethical boundaries of our profession, I can teach clients a deeper understanding and ease with their body. My background in massage is very helpful for teaching clients to recognize cues for stress, pain, sadness, and how to work with breath, relaxation and movement to accept the realities that are a part of being a thinking, feeling being in a physical body.
