“I believe therapy can be a rewarding experience for everyone. As a practitioner, I work closely with my clients, using a strengths-based approach, to help create change and achieve their personal and professional goals. By engaging in the therapeutic process, my clients are able to identify problem areas in their lives and relationships, increase their ability to communicate effectively, find new ways of relating to themselves and others, as well as develop positive strategies for successful conflict resolution.”
“Every client comes in with a unique set of concerns. Therefore, I find it necessary to tailor my interventions to best suit their individual needs. I enjoy working with my clients to find within themselves the ability to develop healthy patterns of behavior and improve their overall quality of life.”
