"The cure for anything is salt water, sweat, tears or the sea"
APPROACH TO TREATMENT
My approach to treatment is informed by social work values and psychodynamic theory. This combination recognizes how the external environment, including systems of oppression and privilege and the intrapsychic world interact with each other to shape the ways each person learns to cope with and navigate life’s challenges. I believe the therapeutic relationship is an essential and powerful element in facilitating internal and inter-relational change and I invite ongoing dialogue about how the process of therapy is going. Together we will build on your inherent resilience, working collaboratively to uncover and alleviate suffering. We will consider the elements of work, love and play in your life and what aspect of these may need to be brought into balance. I am empathic, playful and direct in my care and look forward to hearing from you.
