Each therapy path is tailored to best fit each client’s unique history, personality, physical and mental health needs and ability to tolerate change. As we identify what feelings, behaviors, relationships, life situations, roles and other areas

of your life you wish to alter, we construct a flexible path along which outdated

behaviors, thoughts and emotional responses are updated  through:  



    - Reconfiguration of  pre-constructed thoughts about experiences and concepts to better

       fit your current realities

    - Communication and relationships skills to enhance your comfort level connecting with

        others, increase your ability to set boundaries, become comfortable in asserting your

        thoughts and feelings, and so on to create and maintain casual and intimate relationships.

    - Problem solving skills that allow you to move ahead into new aspects of your life

    - Stress-reaction reduction techniques to reduce the emotional interference from present and

      past experiences and future anticipations to enhance your ability to make productive decisions

    - Learn and practice new patterns of behavior to integrate the above into your life


    - Referrals to supporting experiences and services and medical resources, including

     assessment for  medication if appropriate,


Finally, the ongoing application of these to all or any parts of your life can result in opening doors

of opportunity you never knew existed as change begins in one realm, such as work, and spreads

to other areas in your life such as relationships, parenting, spirituality, coping with illness and

loss until your life gains the balance that allows you to continue building on your own.


As I learn the unique dispositions that makes you you, it is my job to employ the assessment

and treatment skills honed through twenty six years of professional/clinical and personal

experience to:

   - Identify the strengths and insights you bring

   - Your comfort level with change

   - The meanings and reactions you have assigned to your physical, emotional, mental,

     and spiritual life

   - How you cope with life’s stresses

   - What may be blocking you from achieving the goal(s) you set

   - The tools currently available to you and those to be learned

   - Any other areas if intervention useful to help you move forward

These and other factors help determine which combination of conventional and

alternative therapies may be most productive at what moments in our work.



Your active participation in therapy helps to ensure that the changes you want to make

become more easily accessible and enduring. It is your job to continue to let me know

what “fits” for you , to prepare for the next session by highlighting what you have taken

home and any between-session work we have identified.


Our joint assessment of how your therapy is progressing is ongoing and and open to alterations

along the way with the understanding that the confidentiality of your sessions will be maintained

in accordance with the HYPPA confidentiality laws
