Clients usually arrive with some version of the Triple-Knot and a fractured sense of self. Their major issue is a series of fractured, unsatisfying relationships. My task is to gain a client's trust, and help he/she unravel their Triple-Knot, and gain fulfillment within the Self.
I help clients to navigate their world of relationships by learning to "do less" and "be more." This starts by modeling a new and different relationship that is without judgment or unwanted advice. Most clients are operating in a "crisis-management" modality, and the larger goal in therapy is transformation to an empowered "leadership" modality.
With many people, therapy has a negative reputation of just a "bunch of talk" and nothing changes. That has not been the case with my clients. I am known as a therapist that "makes it happen" for them.
