y aim, in this work, is to provide a safe space in which trust and reliability can be experienced, allowing for deepening exploration and growth. For most of my life, I have been involved in work with people - nursing, psychotherapy, group work, and supervision. I feel a deep sense of humility and respect for those people who are brave enough to seek their own truth. I believe my presence as a witness, and a facilitator, is best manifested by an approach that combines understanding and feeling. Integrity and honesty of the therapist is not only a good role to model, but also necessary for the development of the therapeutic relationship. In order for me to be able to be clear and not troubled by issues or events that "trigger" my own hurts and distortions, therapy and supervision are an integral part of my own professional and personal needs.
