According to my theoretical orientation, many of the forces and dynamics that have influenced the complexity and intensity of our problems are rooted in relational issues. I work primarily from a relational style of therapy, drawing upon psychodynamic and existential, family of origin, attachment, object relations and didactic resources. I believe that the source of our greatest joys and fears, our deepest pain and desires, are rooted in relational issues. I view the counseling process as an alliance from which a safe place is provided to explore how our style of relating may interfere with experiencing a full and meaningful life. In this alliance, my hope is that we can experience what Henri Nouwen speaks of so brilliantly in his writings on the Cup of Sorrow: “In the midst of of the sorrows is consolation, in the midst of the darkness is light, in the midst of the despair is hope, in the midst of Babylon is a glimpse of Jerusalem“. I believe that certain problems can have a physical component as well – in such cases, medical consultation will be advised.
