Message to clients

Welcome to my profile here on Zencare! I know shopping for a counselor can be a little strange. Let me try to give you the clearest idea about what coming to therapy with me is like.

I put a lot of emphasis on making sure we are both deeply present during sessions. This means that if I percieve that we are stuck at a surface level, I will bring this up directly and we will move toward being truly present. A skill of mine is in helping clients understand what is important to them even if they don't know how to articulate it. I listen carefuly and watch carefully in order to be able draw us toward the heart of any given issue.

My goal is for you to experience yourself more poignantly and truly during our sessions, which will then give you more freedom to decide how you want to proceed. Because of this approach, I don't give out worksheets or emphasize symptom management. While those things can be helpful in a practical sense, my orientation is toward inner healing at the core of whatever wound is present. Rather than give you the tools to distract yourself from your pain, I want us to go on a journey together to face that pain directly. Through this process the pain will transform, it will heal, and you will experience inner freedom.
