My Approach to Helping
I enjoy helping people make lasting changes they feel good about. If we team up, I will work with you flexibly and even playfully, incorporating techniques and approaches that have proven to work. I will encourage you to couple your insight with action so you can work out creative solutions. I will respect your right to decide what is good for you, based on your truths. I will help you to rewrite The Story of You.
My specialties: I'm skilled at helping people change things that get them hung up. I have special expertise helping people being ruled by anxiety and worry; people having trouble making close friends; and people carrying a loud, critical judge on their shoulders.
