In the Room:
In my practice I lean toward a collaborative therapeutic style. Individual sessions often begin with, “Where would you like to start today?” While we talk I may provide feedback, encourage you to try something new, or push you to explore thoughts and feelings more deeply.
I utilize a variety of theoretical models to help conceptualize and understand your unique experience in the world and formulate a treatment plan for presenting issues. If I had to boil it down to a few core theories I might say Narrative, Existential, Person-Centered, and Psychodynamic approaches are the big influences of my style.
I am also a big fan of the brain-body connection and find Dan Siegel’s work (see the links section for his books) very informative. I try to incorporate brain science into my approach.
