As we are going to post your answers on the TMS Wiki, feel free to write some text to introduce yourself:
In therapy, my goal is to assist you in addressing issues that are difficult to confront on your own, which often manifest as anxiety, depression, or dissatisfaction in relationships and/or your career. I approach our work together collaboratively, through helping you to articulate your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and nonjudgmental environment. My task is to encourage you to express yourself, to clarify your goals and to explore the obstacles that have held you back. I listen, reflect and use clinical methods based on my training and expertise. I strive to help you develop strategies that support the progress you desire. I listen for the patterns in your life and help you identify them so that you can develop a clearer understanding of your life experiences and develop new, more satisfying ways of relating. My understanding as a therapist is informed by my training and clinical experience, but also grounded by a long-held commitment to my own psychological work and development.
