In psychotherapy I work with individuals and couples primarily from an emotion-focused approach to help each client better navigate their life through better navigating their emotions. I see people as being experts in their own unique experiences and having the inborn capacity to thrive if barriers to that capacity are understood and resolved. I make an effort to understand you and the internal and external barriers that might get in the way of your thriving.
People have many parts to them. I strive to understand how these various parts work together and conflict for you. Often, this is most quickly uncovered by better understanding the feelings that emerge for you in, and between, our sessions. The discoveries made with this approach are often surprising and help to make sense of long-standing difficulties. Though therapy with me can be a lot of work, it can also be rewarding for the emotional growth and inner strength you gain as we work together.
