Whether I'm working with you on individual counseling or couples counseling, my work is guided by a consistent set of guiding principles.
Principles that guide me in my counseling practice with individuals and couples:
I work with you in individual counseling to come to terms with the concerns that brought you to seek counseling and to develop your skills and resources so that you find a satisfying resolution. I want to see you address your concerns as quickly as you're able while pursuing the personal growth work that you may need to resolve them. I often find my clients visiting a variety of different life themes and life's givens in the course of their work.
My couples counseling methods follow the same humanistic principles listed above, adapted for couples counseling and informed by attachment theory. I also integrate other perspectives relevant to the couples and partnering context.
