APPROACH 2018-03-28T02:45:44+00:00

I have been fortunate to attend trainings for many modalities of therapy and I have come to understand that there is something that works for each of us.

While meeting with clients I consider the importance of our past experiences, our current state of mind and our future goals. I believe in compassion and balance, and working towards a better self without judgement.

In sessions, one of my goals is to be mindful and offer a safe place for clients to share personal thoughts and experiences. Being present in each moment allows me to focus on a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients. This relationship then leads to us collaboratively establishing goals as well as working toward goals.
