Is client-centered. This is your time. I have no agenda in my psychotherapy practice other than working with you to achieve your goals.

Goals in psychotherapy can be met with cognitive behavioral techniques, techniques to help the mind train itself to handle situations differently and more successfully for you. Or goals can be met through intrapsychic work by identifying emotion patterns and coping strategies, and considering options of relating differently and more successfully for you. I’m a therapist familiar with both approaches.

I see people in my psychotherapy practice who are gay, and people who are not gay. I see non-gender conforming individuals. I see gender-conforming individuals. The common denominator in my psychotherapy practice is people who work on giving themselves better lives.

In couples work, and I’ve done this modality for the ten years of my psychotherapy practice, we explore what an authentic, communicative, satisfying relationship can be. We’ll look at the issues. Sex issues. Money issues. Family issues.

Whoever is in the room with me, I see psychotherapy as an interactive process. That means you won’t be met with a blank stare. I will bring all that I can from my life experience, my professional training and my years as a therapist to the situation you bring. The success for psychotherapy is maximized by doing this.

This is a safe place where you can be met and understood. Psychotherapy is a safe place where the secrets can be released. So often when this happens, when the secrets are spoken, connections are made by the person speaking them. Or sometimes in psychotherapy when the person is but a half-step away from speaking them, the therapist can begin the speaking.

I want to talk about my vibe in doing the work. It’s approachable and sensitive. The challenge for the client in psychotherapy is great enough without encountering a therapist’s arrogance, or a power trip, or enigma for the sake of enigma. I’m humane, empathic, experienced.
