'My work is with adults in individual & couple psychotherapy. I am a generalist working with a wide range of goals & difficulties. This comes from my training working with people & process rather than with particular problems. There are common threads running through the human experience that make therapeutic elements such as listening, understanding, sharing depth of experience, & quality of therapeutic relationship healing with most everyone. I believe connection to others, community, spirit, & oneself to be fundamental in the problems people bring to me and in the solutions that emerge. Also that finding meaning in one's life is fundamental to satisfaction.
I also work with people in a very pragmatic way drawing on whatever resources are available, e.g., medication, exercise, nutrition, reading, therapeutic homework, journaling, art, family research, etc. I believe it's often important to collaborate (with permission) with primary care doctors, psychiatric professionals, and others as appropriate.
I come from training in humanistic/existential/gestalt approaches and have since incorporated elements of cognitive behavioral work (CBT) and have embraced mindfulness based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
