I have a strong belief in the inherent worth and dignity of all people, and in the value of safe, healthy and compassionate human relationships. My goal is to begin where you are at---emotionally and psychologically---and to work together to create a safe space and therapeutic relationship and process where you can explore your struggles and identify your therapeutic needs and goals. It is my goal to empower, support and assist you in expanding your knowledge, skills and capacities to meet your therapeutic goals. It is my experience that as clients become more aware and accepting of themselves, and as they increase their knowledge and skills, they are more capable of finding peace, joy and satisfaction in their lives and relationships.
The treatment processes and interventions I use will be based specifically on your individual situation, needs, and goals. This is a collaborative and respectful process. I encourage my clients to take an active role in the therapeutic process, and to work on the things we talk about both during and between sessions. Generally, the more of yourself you invest in your treatment process, the greater your return. It is a joy and a privilege for me to be able to participate in my clients' process of healing, growth and development.
