I have practiced psychotherapy in the Upper Valley for ten years. I have worked with children and families for thirty years. During that time, I have observed that each of us approaches life’s challenges differently. We are creative, resourceful, and intelligent, but life can still prove to be overwhelming if we face its challenges alone. Each of us has the capacity to solve problems, to learn to communicate well, and to find the things in life which give us great satisfaction, but we often need help understanding our own feelings and desires. We can’t always see which obstacles we create ourselves.
As a therapist, I feel strongly that it is important to work toward your goals, not mine. Together, we determine which of the challenges you face are most distressing. Then we begin the process of understanding the underlying causes of that distress. Because each person is unique, my approach varies depending on the specific needs of the individual, but it is always important to start where you are today. Most often, it is beneficial to meet weekly at a time which is mutually agreeable. Let’s talk.
