Exactly how therapy helps people is hard to describe in few words, as people come to counseling with different needs.


In the most general sense, I see my work as helping people to live and experience life in a way they find more enjoyable.  My approach is outcome-oriented and appreciates a person’s ability to change and make adjustments in their life through increased awareness, learning new ways of relating, living with a clear idea of where one wants to go based on one’s values, and being connected with other people.


The help I provide is tailored to meet the individual needs of the people I work with and draws primarily from psychodynamic and existential perspectives while incorporating cognitive behavioral strategies (CBT).  In a nutshell, psychodynamic and existential therapies are useful for developing insight and self-awareness, while CBT helps people deal more effectively with their thoughts, feelings, and actions.   


I believe we all have strengths and think it is important for us to notice them, build upon them, and utilize them.  Ultimately, I think therapy can be very helpful when one finds a good therapist and is ready to engage in the process.


My experience has been that by helping people address their concerns they find greater peace of mind and an increased sense of well-being.  It is unfortunate that people often wait many years (research suggests almost 10 years) before asking for help given that effective therapy can significantly improve one’s quality of life.
