I would say I work best with people who want an "active" listener, not someone who sits back passivly. I believe therapy is an active verbal interaction between equals that focuses on the recognition of current as well as the building of new strengths to solve both individual and relationship problems. My treatment approach is to listen first, then provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns of behavior. I have been teaching and practicing for over 38 years and have been listening to the ways people solve their real and perceived difficulties, both in themselves and in their social interactions.
My professional development has focused on how we have experienced or have developed cognitive / behavioral patterns that allow stress into our lives and especially how it is acted out in our physical / sexual relating to ourself and others. As such, marital / couples communication is one of my primary specialty areas.
Having myself been married for over 35 years I have greatly benefitted from learning from my "Better Half" and believe that life experience as well as professional experience allows a therapist to offer a kind of "library of workable choices" to help their clients in choosing to develop what is needed to best fit their individual or relationship goals. I expect my clients to work hard in and out of the therapy office. Insight is revealing, however behavior creates change.
