My Approach to Helping

I am highly empathetic, skilled, and interested in you and your success. I will encourage and support you to rise above and move beyond your challenges. I whole-heartedly believe that participating in counseling can be SO valuable in a person's life. I'm a therapist who follows the philosophy that counseling is for the CLIENT, not the therapist's business. Your time working with me focuses on YOU and You ARE worth it! I feel it is a privilege that clients allow me into their lives often despite past or present hurts, losses, andor traumas. I am wholly aware that a client can chose any therapist, but am so appreciative that my clients allow me to walk alongside them in their journey into and through discovery.
