A life without personal growth is limited.
I take a three prong approach to working with individuals. First I listen to the symptoms that bring them into therapy and assess how stable their current relationships are with friends, family and career. Then I take a psychosocial history identifying traumatic events. And eventually I hear their deepest longing for the future.
Since past, present and future are often intertwined, I can hear the connections and help you see them as well. With a difficult childhood, you didn’t cause the challenges in your life. Unfortunately, you are the one who will need to do the work to make things better. I won’t know the specifics of the journey, but I can lead you through that challenging work.
