My goal is to co-create a working relationship with you where personal transformation is possible.
At times, I wear a more traditional therapist hat, asking questions and encouraging you to explore your thoughts, feelings and actions. I also act as a coach, giving you encouragement and providing emotional support as you do what it takes to make changes in your life. I can be direct, calling you on your old patterns when I see them. I can also listen and witness when you are in the vulnerable place of speaking from your heart.
Therapy, like church, is not something you do for one hour a week. It is a living practice. I will sometimes encourage “homework.” This could be something as simple as reading a relevant article, or a doing some sort of mindfulness practice. As the therapeutic relationship is established, I also offer something I call “field therapy,” where I can do a home visit or even coach you in the parking lot of an audition or job interview.
