“I believe psychotherapy is a matter of integrating two paradoxical polarities: working to modify unconsciously learned and held emotional programs (what PBSP calls “maps”) and a two-person relationship that cannot be reduced to any technical or scientific understanding. I like the way PBSP deals with this polarity.  What psychology calls “symptoms”, which are things like anxiety, and depression, I see as the self communicating with the self saying that something is off and needs to be changed. The methods and theories of PBSP are my favorite way to help people deal these needs.”

I am most interested in long-term, in-depth work with people. For me, it means not just helping them find relief from the symptoms, but helping them work at the core cause of the symptoms. Both the theory and practice of PBSP helps me achieve that end.
