How I work
You can expect me to work with you to create an environment that is welcoming, non-judgmental, and safe. This is very important because thoughtful, emotional risk taking is necessary for real change. We will explore not only what is happening in the here and now, but also your early life as it plays a role in who you are today and how you deal with any given situation. I will invite you to say what you are thinking and feeling in the moment, especially if you are afraid I won’t like it. It may be useful to include your impressions and feelings about me and mine about you, so we can learn together to what extent all this reflects your relationships in general. In this way, the relationship that develops between us becomes a safe way to discover, explore, and change ways of relating so that all your relationships, perhaps most importantly with yourself, become more fulfilling.
