My Approach to Helping
I believe in multiple therapeutic approaches, understanding each person is an individual. I have a particular interest in working with children and fathers. I am a genuine lover and believer in humanity and feel this is felt by my clients. I use humor and non-traditional forms of therapy to build rapport and help each client feel they can overcome whatever barriers, struggles, or hardships life faces them with. If talk therapy hasn't worked for you before, we will work together to figure out what is best, using creative forms (art, music, poetry) or perhaps going for a walk while talking. I will work collaboratively with you to accommodate your individual needs, interests, and strengths.
