However, insight alone is often not enough to allow clients to make the types of life changes that they desire. Therefore, I also incorporate techniques from action-oriented approaches to therapy that emphasize learning new skills and trying out new behaviors. Since clients frequently struggle with problems in everyday life, these new skills are directed towards improving the quality of their lives.
I believe that therapy should be a partnership. For my part, I will bring my energy, experience, and sensitivity to the therapeutic relationship. In return, I ask each client for openness, honesty, curiosity, and a willingness to experiment with new ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. My goal is to collaborate with each client to help them achieve a greater sense of happiness, peace, integrity and satisfaction in their lives.
