I Believe

As a therapist, my priority is to customize treatments for the individual and not force clients to conform to predetermined methods. I provide individual, couples, and group therapy, and if appropriate, can offer a combination of these modalities. Above all, I value the creativity and growth potential of every human being. I believe that change is possible no matter how entrenched one may be in a given situation.

I strongly believe in the power of the therapeutic process to heal and to grow. Though it may be hard work and at times somewhat painful, if you are committed to the process, there is so much to gain. As a therapist I take a holistic approach to working with people. I have close relationships with other psychologists, psychiatrists, naturopaths, acupuncturists, nutritionists, and physical therapists.

It is my belief that therapy will not be effective if there are significant imbalances in other areas of one’s life, the most basic of which are diet, sleep, and exercise. In my opinion, one of the limitations of modern medicine is the extent to which people specialize. It inevitably leads to treating symptoms and component parts versus treating the person as a whole. The mind and the body are inextricably bound. I keep this in mind during all of my sessions.
