I am guided by a deep respect for the unique wisdom we each bring to our own experience. Overall, my aim is to help facilitate your healing and to empower your sense of agency.
My approach is highly collaborative and is tailored to the specific needs and desires of each individual. Our therapeutic conversation begins with what feels most pressing for you, with what keeps calling your attention. Gradually we shift into an exploration of recurring patterns that might no longer serve you and work to discover new paths beyond them.
Together we bring our curiosity to bear on the range of your moods and feelings, we make room for the significance of your dreams, and we allow for your fantasies and your fleeting thoughts to inform and to direct us.
Such engaged curiosity helps us develop our capacity to embrace the present moment and to experience ourselves fully alive within it. Over the course of a therapy, as this vital capacity is strengthened and refined, our quest for happiness—that profound sense of security borne out of self-acceptance—becomes a worthwhile project in its own right.
