A good theoretical orientation as well as instinct are essential ingredients in the working through process of therapy. I focus on the earlier life experiences as well as later life experiences and believe that we ‘wear our past.’ My evaluation and therapy is based on understanding how your unresolved material remains active in current behavioral choices and decision making.
