As a therapist, I strive to foster a creative space in which to explore your concerns. I am comfortable exploring the “depths” of individuals; that which is merely hinted at, but might require a bit of play to uncover.
At the same time, I am also squarely attuned to reality, and endeavor to help my clients clear away obstacles to their personal growth. If a symptom is in the way of that growth, we will attack it together. If we are successful, you can move on quickly; I do not believe that treatment has to be interminable to be effective.
If, on the other hand, you find therapy to be a valuable ongoing venue for trying out new ideas, I am comfortable in the capacity of advisor with deep knowledge of your personal history, and the changes you make over time.
