Personal Philosophy

My work with people is influenced by the writings of Carl Rogers. He believed that there is a positive energy in all of us which enables us to grow, develop, and become more mature. When a person experiences unconditional acceptance and empathic understanding from another (a parent, friend or therapist) who is also experienced as genuine, human and real, growth naturally occurs. I make every effort to be with, understand and see the positive strengths of clients. My therapeutic work has also been influenced by contemporary self psychology, intersubjectivity theory, and relational theories in psychoanalysis.
