About My Practice - Three Guiding Principles I Follow...

 

  • Relationship and Responsibility: Successful therapy is a natural outcome of a safe, trusting, and mutually respectful relationship between therapist and client. I see it as my responsibility to bring my knowledge of current research and theory, my personal empathy, clinical experience and range of skills to the therapeutic relationship. I see the client’s responsibility as actively commiting to therapy by sharing openly, accepting that even desred change can be uncomfortable, and by providing feedback to me so that each session we may continue to progress.  

 

  • There are no recipes: I seek to draw from a wide range of therapeutic techniques that have been gleaned over many years of practice. I believe no single ‘recipe’ or treatment approach can provide the personal understanding and nuanced attention that is needed for successful therapy. My sense is that treatment must be guided by your unique needs, background and life situation.

 

  • Goals and Outcomes: I believe that part of achieving effective therapy is having goals and outcomes that are explicit and agreed upon by you and me.  These goals might change as we work together.  However, I have found that maintaining a sense of shared direction leads to the most effecient therapeutic resolution for you.
