“Each person comes to therapy with a unique perspective and set of strengths. Their personal life experiences contribute to the way they respond to and perceive the world.  I believe my role is to facilitate clients in finding their unique inner voices and help them to find a greater level of satisfaction in their lives. This might mean resolving past experiences, making changes to a present situation, or discovering  plans and aspirations for the future. All of these goals, I believe, are best met within the safe space of a therapeutic relationship.”
