Individual Psychotherapy
Valerie Kates Marriage Couonsellor

Developing a supportive relationship with my clients is fundamental to my practice of psychotherapy.

My approach is primarily psychodynamic, which means that we explore together what is going on in your life right now and discover how your past plays a role in your current relationships and thought patterns.

I believe that we all develop coping mechanisms that help us deal with our relationships in childhood but these might prevent us from developing healthy relationships as adults. By engaging in a safe and trusting relationship with me, you can explore new ways of reflecting and interacting that will lead to a happier and more fulfilling life.

What we talk about during each session is confidential and private. The time is yours and the focus will be on what you want to bring to the session.

Be patient to all that is unsolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves.
