What can you expect?
A trusting, supportive, and collaborative therapeutic environment.

I believe the foundation of successful therapy is rooted in a trusting, supportive, and collaborative therapeutic relationship. With therapeutic support, my clients discover they possess the inner strengths, resources, and abilities to effect the change they would like to see in their lives.
Drawing from techniques that work, I help clients activate their own capacity to heal and grow. My clients learn and then use new tools to change existing challenges. Within the context of a safe therapeutic relationship we can collectively explore and resolve barriers to intimacy, conflicts, and historical events that release you to more fully live your life. As a result, with work you should expect to think and feel better and ultimately your life should become more meaningful and fulfilling.
