Continuing your therapeutic journey
Many of my clients come to me after having a positive experience with a previous therapist. Knowing how useful psychotherapy can be is a big motivator to getting back on the couch. Psychotherapy can reduce reduce symptoms such as sleeping difficulties, decreased concentration, fatigue, lack of motivation, irritability, and agitation. Using evidence-based treatment I can help you get back to your prime functioning and decrease the intensity of distressing symptoms. Using an eclectic style of ©Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and ©Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) I can help you dive deeper into the issues that keep coming back.
The safety we can create in the therapeutic relationship allows us to explore the suffering that returns time and time again. I challenge my clients to find wisdom in the dark emotions. Ideal therapy allows you to say the un-sayable. Ideal therapy creates a safe space to make peace with the parts of yourself that you want to let go. I hope to attune to you so I can continually assess the level of safety and comfort in ratio to the level of challenge and push. I know my clients come with an intention to make a change in their life, even if they do not know what that change is. I use concepts from Motivational Interviewing (MI) to uncover the difference between your reality and the life you desire. Using a client-center approach I hope to let you steer the ship, but want you to feel you have an expert in navigation at your side. The theoretical foundation of my work is based in a combination of Gestalt Psychology, a Humanistic perspective, and the some concepts from traditional psychodynamic theory.
If I don't have the knowledge base or background experience to meet your specific needs, I have a strong network of resources to make sure that you are getting the treatment that best suits you.
Because of my style, many of my clients find that having an extra non-biased perspective can help on a long term basis for relapse prevention.
