Every client is the expert of their life. A skillful therapist can be a conduit for change. Through the therapist's empathic and active listening skills, validation, collaboration and a mindful approach to therapy, the development of a strong relationship can happen and change can occur. It is through nuance, attunement, egalitarianism, love and trust by the therapist, which enables clients the space and ability to express themselves fully in a nonjudgmental environment. Healing occurs when a client feels completely understood and acknowledged.
I have always been drawn to the helping professions. I am a mother of two adult children, I have been a substitute elementary school teacher which launched my enthusiasm into becoming a therapist for children, adolescents, adults, couples and the elderly. I am truly passionate about the work that I do.
