Message to clients

Reaching out to a psychologist for help is a brave step to take. It involves trusting a stranger and examining one's life, with all its successes and blemishes. I consider it an honor to be given that trust and I work hard to earn it at every session.

Psychotherapy can be thought of as consisting of two apparently opposing concepts: acceptance and change. Good therapists accept clients just as they are but also help them to change into the people they want to be. There is a tension there that can be used skillfully by an experienced and well-trained therapist. I have been that person for the many clients I've seen in over 20 years as a psychologist. I want you to feel accepted and understood every time we meet and I also want you to have a specific and practical plan to be a big step closer to the person you want to me. Acceptance and change. Those are the principles that will guide us.
