“Experience is not what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you.”
This quote sums up what I consider psychotherapy to be all about. I work with individuals to create a more useful understanding of themselves & each other to create a deeper long lasting change.
One thing I often hear from people who have been in therapy before is that they felt the therapist talked more than they did. This is not the experience people have when they work with me. My approach to individual therapy is to create trust by providing a non judgmental environment in which I will help you explore your situation, my questions and comments will be designed to help you discover yourself. I work with you in a collaborative way to understand the full picture of your circumstances, considering present day beliefs, thoughts, fears and desires in their historical context. This approach creates a new level of awareness which is the foundation for change.
