Therapy for Individuals
How do you choose a therapist?
When you are selecting a therapist, it is a good idea to call and have a brief conversation over the phone. Please feel free to call and ask me any questions you may have about how the therapeutic process works, about my particular approach, as well as information about fees and scheduling. This will give you an opportunity to get an initial understanding about what is involved and a feel for our connection and compatibility. I also recommend that potential clients come in for at least an initial session in order to meet and confirm that we are well suited to work together. There are many well-trained therapists, and it is essential to find the person who is a good match for you.

You and the therapeutic process
The relationship between client and therapist is paramount to growth and transformation. In the therapeutic process each participant—therapist and client—deepens their relationship to the meaning of their lives, to the larger whole, and to the mystery of the unknown. It is a process of soul-making. Together, therapist and client become partners in healing.

The goal of therapy is to become more conscious of:

your habitual patterns and reactions
your shadow
your undeveloped potential and creativity

The psyche has the capacity for self-healing. We can invite and assist this natural process.
