First and foremost I listen to you. I listen with a trained ear and lots of experience. Second, I hold an emotional space for you that is safe and conducive to the expression of your authentic self. Third, I respond interactively in sessions, helping you to sort out your thoughts, feelings and concerns. In addition, I may help you to become more aware of your needs and motivations. I may challenge your beliefs and help you to examine your values. I may help you to become more self aware and mindful. I may help you to become more accepting of yourself.
