Tell us a little bit about your approach to counseling:
I approach counseling primarily from an integral standpoint which means looking at the individual, social, objective and subjective aspects of the individual(s) in counseling. By using these different perspectives and placing them in the context of development, the goals and path of therapy tend to stand out much more clearly making for deeper, more effective work. Along with this I see the therapeutic relationship as one of the essential components of change. A safe and trusting relationship creates the container that allows us to accept what is which opens up the space for all of our experience along with what is possible, for what we desire.
