Approach to therapy:
I work largely from a systemic framework. Each client and their concerns are viewed as unique, whereas therapy is tailored to the specific needs, desires and goals of the client. In addition, I utilize a comprehensive and integrated approach to therapy that emphasizes all the factors that contribute to the problem and how to remedy them. We will conceptualize your concerns in the context of other relationships with the understanding that many problems are grounded in relationship patterns that aren’t working. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to help determine their own understanding of themselves and their relationships with others.
Much of the first few sessions will be spent getting to know you, gathering history and background information, listening to your concerns, and assessing the problem and the context in which the problem is embedded. Together, we will then collaborate to develop goals and objectives. Therapy will come to a close by mutual agreement between you and I when the desired outcome has been attained and/or you have achieved your goals.
