Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
I work with individuals to live and relate authentically and giving consideration to their individual capabilities and intents. Too often we limit or live in isolation from ourselves, our beliefs, and zeal, or what we want from relationships. Too often the desire for change comes as a reaction to a dissatisfaction with our self or current circumstances, and can compel us to dismiss the exceptional qualities we already possess. Change isn't about dismissing, but accepting and acknowledging your aspirations, and intentionally actualizing these.
My style is active, informal, and humorous. I don't fit people I work with into theories. I try to understand a person's circumstances and concerns by listening and responding in ways that clarify before offering suggestions or strategies. Clients often express feeling comfortable with me and that we are equals. I believe therapy offers solutions, improved self esteem, and realistic recognition of abilities.
