My goal is to collaborate with my clients to identify their cycles that impede them from progress or change to explore and identify more effective ways to address the problem and develop solutions, leading to the positive changes they seek. Sometimes the attempted solutions are a part of the problem, therefore it is important for the clients to be open to change in their frame of reference. What people focus on affects their outcomes. I strive for my clients to be mindful, recognizing the need for frequent self reflections and enhancing their communicating skills.
