“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying “soften the orange a bit on the right- hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset, I watch with awe as it unfolds.”
– Carl R. Rogers, A Way of Being
How will therapy with me solve your problems?
So, what’s the benefit to you? Clients tell me that “I am easy to speak to”, that “I get them” and they “feel heard.” Others say I am the “only therapist they have met who could deal with their anger ” and that they “feel comfortable” with me. Clients have told me that “I am a good listener” and that they feel “hopeful” after their session with me. I can help you begin to take steps to gain a different perspective on issues that are hindering you from becoming your best self.
Like Carl Rogers, it is my belief that in order for a person to “grow”, they need a therapeutic environment which provides them with acceptance, empathy and openness. I believe that you have within yourself the resources and wisdom to help navigate through the difficulties and problems which you may be facing. These inner resources can be tapped when a therapeutic climate of respect and open-mindedness is provided. Working in collaboration with you, I will help you reconnect with your personal strengths and assist you in improving your personal functioning and moving forwards in your life.
If nothing feels fun anymore and it’s difficult to get out of bed, or if your anxiety or your physical pain is holding you back from doing things, give me a call. If you are avoiding situations or activities because of your fears, I can help.
I provide a free 30 minutes consultation in person to see if there is a good therapeutic fit. BOOK NOW at 403 -493-6040.
I offer you the unique option of ‘talk therapy’ in the office or ‘talk walk therapy’ which takes place out of doors on easy walking trails. Walking outside in the fresh mountain air, amidst the forests and stunning backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, can provide you with a more relaxing alternative to therapy in the office. If you are interested in this option, further details can be found under the Therapy Techniques section.
