Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that psychotherapy is a potent antidote for our insecurities and unfulfilling relationships. These difficulties develop when our childhood needs are not met adequately. Early painful emotional experiences can diminish our sense of self, with long lasting effects. These effects take many forms, including anxiety, depression, addictions, and compulsive behaviors. Psychotherapy not only provides relief from these, but a context from within which we can restore our true selves. My approach is based on the therapeutic relationship which provides a unique framework in which healing can take place. When we feel safe and understood we are better able to confront our past by making meaningful changes in the present. The combination of these experiences increases our self-mastery and ability to change and grow. Essentially, it is the person of the therapist that is the catalyst for change, not their academic degrees or school of thought. Growth and success then, is determined by being in a therapeutic relationship that is right for you.
