How I Work with Therapy Clients

 

My work with clients can be summed up in few words:  The outcome of therapy depends on the quality of the connection between the client and the therapist. That quality is more important than any modality the therapist uses or what degrees the therapist holds.

 

I describe the work I do as “Safe Conversations”.  Safe conversations are characterized by trust, empathy, humor and compassion for one’s self. It is as a result of these qualities that healing occurs.

 

One hour sessions at home office in Embudo or by telephone $75.00 per session.  Insurance not accepted.
