My orientation to working with people draws from several different theoretical approaches, is informed by current research, and emphasizes respect and compassion for my clients. My approach is flexible and tailored to the individual needs and desires of each person I work with. I blend my expertise in the approaches and methods together with the feelings, comfort, and beliefs of each client. I provide people with plenty of feedback regarding my impressions such that each person is able to make informed decisions about their therapy. When people are willing, I recommend reading and other activities that can be done between sessions in order to maximize the benefits in as short a time as possible.
