I view clients as innately healthy and capable of positive change. I have twenty-five years of experience as a psychotherapist and I am still excited and enthusiastic about my work with clients and remain endlessly fascinated with people's stories. My approach is holistic; each individual and family is unique. I begin by assessing where the need for development is - on the individual or systemic level, or both. Is it about emotion, cognition, behavior, or all of the above?
