The World Health Organization ranks depression as the fourth most debilitating condition on earth...just below heart disease, cancer and accidents. And it's dramatically on the rise worldwide.
My counseling style is very eclectic. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques which cater to each individual’s unique needs, bearing in mind that those needs may change over time — together, we are creating a “work in progress.” My style is a combination of psychodynamic, self-psychology and cognitive/behavioral (CBT) and I am a very interactive therapist who incorporates warmth and humor.
My interests in mind/body healing, energy work and Reiki also inform my work with clients. Often, I find it helpful with many of my clients to incorporate various spiritual philosophies such as Buddhism, or meditation/visualization techniques.
I also believe that first and foremost, a client needs to make a solid connection with her/his therapist and that a genuine, down-to-earth stance on the part of the therapist affords the client the most beneficial and comfortable experience in the therapy room. Feedback over the years from my clients includes feeling extremely comfortable to share their information and also an appreciation of my direct and interactive style.
