Connection & Understanding Inside
Connection and understanding are key ingredients in helping, and in psychotherapeutic success. Yet, genuineness and true empathic understanding come from life experiences not commonly found in clinical psychologists. This is what makes me different. I can connect and understand where other professionals typically cannot. The breadth of my life experience, combined with the depth of my training, lets me focus on both immediate symptoms and the origins of problems in living.
