My
Approach
My Approach

Existential, Integrative, Psychodynamic, Holistic, SBNR, Pantheist, Panpsychist

My work places emphasis on the human condition as a whole. I use a positive approach that applauds human capacities and aspirations while simultaneously acknowledging an individuals limitations. I encourage people to address the emotional issues they face through full engagement and responsibility. I guide the person to accept their fears and give them the skills necessary to overcome them through action. This creates a sense of liberation and a feeling of letting go of the despair associated with insignificance and meaningless. It creates a feeling of growth and the promotes the embracing of life and to exist with wonder and curiosity. 

I would like to think that in some small way I am trying to create a more loving world. One that consists of truth, love, understanding and compassion.
