My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping includes creating a safe space for you to talk and share your thoughts and emotions. Are you experiencing depression, anxiety and a sense of being overwhelmed and stressed? We will work together to explore what is important to you. Are you troubled by emotional or behavioral issues in your child or teen? Are you facing a major transition? I bring more than two decades of clinical experience to my work with families, children, adults, and teens. I embrace spirituality, and offer individualized holistic treatments. I encourage personal growth and understanding, healing, and change in their lives and relationships.
