I am passionate about helping you develop your internal resources and empower you to have healthy relationships at home and out in ‘the world.’ I strive hard to foster a non-judgmental atmosphere where you feel both supported and challenged. And together, we will share openly about your progress to ensure your therapy is moving in the direction you desire.
I would love to work with you. Contact me with questions and to get that first session scheduled.
