Message to clients

A lot of the distress I work with seems to involve people having strong feelings and then getting tangled up in thinking they are wrong or flawed for having the feelings. I work to help people find their own capacity to be with, befriend and hopefully transform the aspects of themselves that bring them pain and discord, (e.g. depression, anxiety, overwhelming emotional reactions or traumatic memories). I draw from several approaches to therapy, especially IFS, EMDR, and DBT, and approach patients with a personal manner that I am told is open, non-judgmental and engaged. I make my sense of direction and ideas about the course of therapy as clear as I can, and then dialogue about it with my patients to co-create an approach to working with their issues.
