The decision to pursue psychotherapy can be stressful for many people. People who contact me are at various stages of readiness to begin therapy, and I am committed to gently guiding my clients toward a place of relief from emotional distress and an enhanced sense of well-being.
Psychotherapy is an active process for both client and therapist. The most important predictor of success in psychotherapy is the establishment of a solid working relationship that offers the client the freedom and safety to talk about experiences and beliefs that may have been previously avoided, unresolved, or considered uncomfortable as a topic to discuss with spouses, friends, boyfriends/girlfriends or family.
Within a combination of insight, awareness, empathy and support you begin to discover the means to change and a more meaningful and balanced life.
