Throughout our lives we all experience times when we feel alone and stuck. Working with an experienced caring professional who will actively listen and understand in a safe, private setting can help us achieve a greater sense of personal satisfaction in ourselves and in our relationships.
My approach to therapy is warm and collaborative. I believe growth comes from enhancing our understanding of ourselves and learning to make choices that can lead us to greater freedom and lasting positive change. Removing symptoms, changing self-defeating patterns, improving self-esteem, working with our strengths, and developing healthy relationships are each a part of this meaningful process.
