What You Can Expect From Me

•  A safe and comfortable therapeutic environment; an atmosphere of respect and compassion in which you get the help you need to face formerly unbearable and frightening feelings.
•  Insight, empathy, support, and understanding.
•  A collaborative process. You help design a treatment that works for you.
•  Emphasis and expertise in emotional life.
•  Honesty about what I see. I believe you will benefit most by hearing the truth.
•  Attention to early childhood traumas and family dynamics which replay themselves in our present lives, at the same time without sacrificing the present for the sake of the past.
•  Continual and collaborative monitoring of the process, to determine its effectiveness and make any necessary adjustments.
•  A free use of creativity and imagination, rather than a formulaic approach that comes from a textbook.
•  Care and concern throughout the process. Therapy can be difficult and painful, but I will do my best to see that it is not any more so than is absolutely necessary.
