I believe that psychotherapy is an interactive process that calls for both the client and the therapist to be as fully involved as possible. Therefore, I participate actively with my patients, sharing my thoughts, impressions, and reactions to what we are talking about. I believe that people can change even long-standing patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior if THEY participate actively. My job is to create a space where clients can be curious and learn about the ways of thinking, feeling, and acting that they bring to their lives, and about how these ways work for them and against them. I create this space by bringing both my professional training and understanding and my human compassion, empathy, and respect.
In my practice, I typically meet with people once a
week; if there is a need for additional support, or if we decide together
that more intense work is called for, meeting twice a week can be very
meeting once a week allows clients to develop enough comfort with me and
with therapy for our work to be effective and helpful.
