My approach is to listen carefully to what you want and then to deliver that to you. Everyone is unique. And I feel I’ve never once treated two cases in the same way.
My style is interactive, light, direct, educational, warm, full of deep dives, and at times, humorous.
My life includes being blissfully married for over forty years (to the same guy!) and so I know from experience just how challenging great relationships can be. Did I say challenging? And my marriage has been an ongoing field test for the many professional trainings that I’ve taken.
So when I’m giving homework it's because I know firsthand that it works. You’ll never get any academic stuffy nonsense or judgment from me, I promise.
My perspective I owe to the many people who've taught me how to live from my essential self. This core is what constantly replenishes my life.
It gives me my therapist-superpower: I recognize the central awesomeness in everyone that I work with. And my agenda is for people to see this for themselves.
Clients come to therapy thinking that they need to explore their wounds in order to heal.
But I believe that as much or more good comes from discovering our best and brightest selves.
Why? Positive energy makes problem-solving easier.
That means less time in therapy and more time for your new happier life.
