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 self psychology, intersubjectivity theory, and relational psychoanalysis.
