Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
After many years working with families, couples and individuals, and reflecting on my own life choices, I have come to believe we make meaning and take steps in our lives according to the stories we tell and are told about ourselves and the world. These stories may be family, relationship, or cultural stories. Thus I have chosen a Narrative model of therapy, which uses the metaphor of story to understand the relationship between people and their problems.

From this perspective, when problems bring people into therapy, their lives or relationships have been taken up by a problem story. The problem story becomes the lens through which they view themselves and often others, obscuring other knowledge, skills and experiences. The Narrative approach works to facilitate the discovery of those unstoried experiences which are more closely allied with one’s values, are more empowering, and offer hope and new possibilities.
