My Approach to Helping

Each human experience is different, and the path to healing is unique for each human being. I use an integrated approach and work with each client to design a treatment plan that meets their own personal needs and goals. It is my hope that each person who steps into my office feels comfortable, accepted, and safe. I respect each individual?s culture, gender, race, and sexual identity. I enjoy working with clients of all ages, and I provide individual, family, and couples sessions. I truly enjoy working with each person who walks into my office. I feel privileged to meet numerous wonderful human beings and to have the opportunity to help make their days better.
