I have an engaging, relaxed style and sense of humor that leads
People towards more enjoyment of their lives. I am approachable and easy to talk to, informal and friendly.
I am direct and honest with my clients. I give people information
and feedback, ‘diagnosis’ and ‘prognosis.’ I offer ideas and give homework where most therapists draw answers out of their clients in that stereotyped ‘how do you feel about that?’ approach.
Many times I can suggest a book or a movie that will help with
learning a new insight or changing behavior.
I often ‘teach’ as part of my counseling, since the more we can
understand about ourselves and human nature, the more that helps us change.
I enjoy using multiple methods and multiple resources to seek the
most effective and quick way to change.
I am a good listener. My clients often remark that I ‘get’ them.
One of the most rare and most satisfying experiences possible is to have someone be fully ‘present,’ to offer you their full attention, to really hear you and ‘see’ you and to accept you as you are.
