Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
When I'm doing regular therapy, my goal is to help people notice what's really in their way, and support them in deciding what to do about it. You and your problems are unique, so in my office you will be respected and heard, not fixed with some off-the-shelf technique. If somebody told you to "see someone," I can be that person and respect your real needs at the same time. (If we agree to try EMDR, then I _will_ be using an established method to tackle unwanted memories quickly). Give me a call or email me! - there's no hard sell and no obligation.
