Types of therapy offered & philosophy I work in a way that is process oriented and relationship focused, as I see this psychodynamic approach as leading to the most lasting and deep change. Change happens in relationship, and in observing, understanding, and altering selfdestructive patterns we repeat in our lives. Grief, emotional issues relating to substance abuse recovery, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and anxiety are frequent foci of treatment. I also have training in and sensitivity to spirituality and faith. During the first three sessions, I focus upon developing an initial understanding of your dynamics and hopes for therapy, but just as importantly, our dynamic, as I see the therapeutic relationship as the vehicle of change. To develop this understanding, I listen to your story, and ask a variety of questions, more than in a typical session, in order to hone in on an initial understanding of the kind of work we will be doing together. In these first few sessions, we decide whether we will be a good fit in embarking on the therapeutic venture. Evening appointments available on Mondays and after school appointments available. Convenient central location in a shared office suite in downtown Montpelier facilitates ease of access during lunch hour or other breaks during the work day.
