Therapy is a creative process built on a strong partnership. I believe the best outcomes start with honoring your own experiences, inherent wisdom and strengths. I believe that forging a path toward healing is best accomplished through compassionate understanding and acceptance of the past. My job is not to judge. It is to listen, support and guide you in understanding the areas in your life that may need attention. Together, we will identify goals and create a thoughtful, wise life plan in which healthy, effective change is possible.
