I have experienced much success helping my clients resolve their issues, while creating a nurturing and safe environment. I incorporate humor and friendship in my practice and have found this helpful in furthering the progress and positive experience that therapy can bring. I believe that my laid back approach helps clients to feel comfortable to be able to express themselves freely, and thus be able to work through the issues that brought them to treatment. As well, I spend a lot of energy making sure that I stay current on the most effective therapeutic interventions, so that I am able to make my clients feel like they can trust my skills and knowledge.
