My theoretical orientation/’style’ is best expressed by the following statements: Mental illness is real. Everyone has mental health problems from time to time. Not everyone has mental illness. It is vital to understand this distinction, and offer treatment accordingly. YOU are the expert on you. No mental health provider is ever going to know better than you what is ‘normal’ or ‘usual’ for you. Good psychotherapy helps you to: understand and strengthen your normal self, identify your earliest warning signs of ‘abnormal’, and act to avoid dangerous extremes. Relationship and connectedness make life worth living. Therapy is a safe place to develop relational skills.
I really believe in recovery, the power of wholeness. We all have the capacity to feel whole no matter what our life experience is or has been. I would be honored to help you accept and celebrate your unique self. I do consultations. Even though I am very busy I try to work folks in over time.
