Practice Philosophy

"The psychologist Carl Rogers said, “Meet the patient where they are,” in the 1950’s.  Today the Buddhist Nun Pema Chodron wants us to “Start where we are.”  I listen to help the client uncover their own resilience and ability to change.  I have learned this from clients in my experience in emergency psychiatry and through long term relationships with clients over many years.  People are amazing!"
