begins with an assessment of the problem. During the first few sessions I will listen carefully to the things you say.
I will also listen for the things that you can't bring yourself to say. I will give you feedback on what I hear and what I
think. This initial assessment process can take a couple of sessions. The assessment concludes with identifying some goals
for therapy. This helps set direction and focus on what we will talk about during your sessions, as well as giving us a time
frame for our work together.
I have many tools in my therapy
toolbox and together we will choose the ones that are right for you. I will always offer insights to help you see
the things that you are not aware of. Often, just having someone who can listen and understand will be enough to help you
to feel a lot better in a short time.
I might also
suggest homework for you to do between sessions, or use body awareness, movement or mindfulness techniques to help you identify
and clarify your thoughts and feelings. I will be honest with you about my impressions and assessments and I will support
you in making changes that will lead to more ease and satisfaction in your life.
Successful therapy depends upon a good relationship between therapist and client. Therefore, I offer
a free 20-minute phone consultation to help you determine whether I am the right therapist for you.
