As a therapist I am committed to providing quality treatment and helping you realize your personal goals. The counseling process is a mutual effort entailing respect, responsibility, and consideration. Your part is to help me understand your life situation, thoughts, and feelings. My part is to help you explore and discover; to problem solve; to find self-acceptance; to truly see and know yourself. In this way, we will together find those solutions that fit with your core principles and values. The changes you create result in more satisfying relationships, increased harmony in your home, satisfaction and fulfillment in your work, health and wellness in your life.
I will give you my full attention and energy when we are working together. And while it is impossible to guarantee any specific outcome, together we will work to achieve the best possible results for you. As my client, you and your concerns will always be treated with the utmost measure of confidentiality, dignity, and respect. Therapy is always endlessly fascinating for me. I approach the opportunity to work with you with a sense of wonderment at the story that will unfold.
