Approach with Adults
My approach has foundations in an experiential style of psychotherapy. I am always integrating the latest advances in neurocognitive science with the insights that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is among the strongest predictors of positive change, independent of the specific treatment used. Beginning with our initial contact, I provide the authenticity and warmth necessary to build a strong collaborative relationship, identify your primary goals, and agree upon a treatment plan.
Throughout my career, I have found that many adult clients can achieve significant growth and change through short-term, solution-focused psychotherapy. I have supported hundreds of clients by integrating goals-oriented approaches such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Additionally, many adults find that long-term psychotherapy can provide ongoing opportunities for growth and self-exploration. My process-oriented psychotherapy work is rooted in a Humanistic-Existential view of the person, and offers continued supportive reflection and emotional transformation as my clients journey into previously unexplored stages of life.
