My Practice

Be Patient toward all that is
Unsolved in your heart
And try to love the questions
Do not seek the answers
That cannot be given you
Because you would not be able
To live them.
And the point is to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps you will gradually,
Without noticing it,
Live along some distant day
Into the answer.

—Ranier Marie Rilke

Yes, psychotherapy is a journey. A journey of uncovering the questions of our lives, so that we may live towards our own answers.

The more relational and emotionally based this work is then the more rewarding and successful. I see this as usually mid or long term work. The psyche takes its own time to reveal itself.A lifetime is not explored and changed in a few months.

Of course, there are problems, people and circumstances that do lend themselves to briefer problem solving approaches. If this is indicated then that is what we’ll do.

I work with a wide range of clients. Of late, it seems many of my clients are couples, men, adolescents and mid-life and elderly of both sexes. Each are addressing important problems and/or growth stages in their lives.

Our work can be fearful and fearless, exciting and/or slow and always the challenge of facing painful disruptions, interpersonal conflicts, not-knowing and ourselves.
