Treatment approach is results oriented and often psycho-educational. This leaves you more free and in control of your emotions, values, decisions and also aware and mindful of them. Therapy is Love, a long continuous conversation about you and for you, in a relationship based on trust, reliability, acceptance and compassion for suffering. i am experienced in most modalities and apply them flexibly to most benefit the patient and your goals. Family theory is utilized to help with the basic human need to fit into a system, to belong while still being fully yourself. The PAT helps to create an atmosphere of affection, welcome, attachment, safety and calm.
