My philosophy of care is to understand the client’s history and current concerns in order to create an individual plan that centers on reaching improved mental health in meaningful ways. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process that takes honesty, trust, effort, and consistency in order to achieve positive outcomes. My aim is to provide life-long skills that clients can use to navigate new challenges they may encounter after treatment is complete.
