Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
There are various motivators that lead people to seek professional help, whether to enrich interpersonal relationships, reach for goals or for improved performance, survive and surpass grief and bereavement, or search deeper into an internal process. Experiencing depression, anxiety, grief or relationship problems is never easy, though in reality these can be an unavoidable part of life. Most of the time, we overcome the hardships without assistance. However, when stressors and symptoms outweigh our personal resources, or when they provoke unresolved feelings that interfere with our functioning, a strong support system can be invaluable. Therapy provides a nonjudgmental setting in which to examine issues that we might not readily share with others. It can help us better understand ourselves, our circumstances and our possibilities. In fact, what benefits us most is to receive kind and keen attention, and within that context we often find the guidance we need. I draw from an eclectic range of therapeutic modalities and teachings to address various issues in sessions. These include psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral approaches, as well as transpersonal psychology, family systems theory, neuroscience and mindfulness training. My personal style is Rogerian, meaning that I place great importance on creating a kind and safe atmosphere to help you feel understood and supported, while we explore difficult challenges. Ralph Waldo Emerson writes, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
