Individual, Couples and Family Counseling Services

CORNERSTONES of treatment

The foundation of good psychotherapy is the relationship between the therapist and client; a client can be an individual, a couple or a family.

As your therapist, I endeavor to:

  • Listen deeply and responsively.
  • Encourage personal inquiry toward cultivating your awareness and insight.
  • Provide you with a safe and nonjudgmental space that supports useful risk-taking and change.
  • Offer creative explorations that are specific to you and related to your therapeutic goals.
  • Present you with tools drawn from neuroscience, biofeedback, and traditional schools of psychology.
