Change can be difficult and exciting. It often takes a great deal of courage to make the changes we sometimes need to make, in order to live the life of our dreams. I congratulate you on taking your first step toward that goal.
I have the privilege of walking with people through their own personal journeys of self-revelation and self-discovery. I see my role in therapy as the person who carries your map, as we walk together. You already hold the answers; through therapy, we have the opportunity to uncover them together.
My style is client-centered and humanistic. I will do my best to meet you where you are and we will work from there toward where you’d like to be.
I will work with you in a way that acknowledges and builds upon your strengths and potential. I’ll strive to create an environment of mutual trust, respect and collaboration. My approach can be challenging and direct at times, yet always compassionate and caring.
