My Approach to Helping
I believe that everyone has untapped inner strength that a good therapist can help them access. When you come to my office, I work with you to access that inner strength and use it to deal with your emotions and work on your unique challenges. I am nurturing, non-judgmental, warm, and intuitive. I prioritize the needs of the people who come into my office -- if I don't think I'm the best person to help you, I won't hesitate to refer you to someone else. The foundation of a good therapeutic relationship is honesty and a strong connection, and I'll always be honest with you while we work to build that connection.
Seeing people improve their lives, relationships, and communication skills, learn how to deal with conflict, and find intimacy and closeness is extremely rewarding. I consider myself very lucky because I'm so passionate about what I do.
