About Me

I believe the need to be heard and acknowledged is an innate part of human existence. I strive first to understand the individual and their concerns, then to provide guidance and support that is based on scientific knowledge and clinical expertise. Collaboratively, my patient and I identify desired outcomes and through discussion, facilitate insight, setting the foundation for more effective coping and greater confidence. Depending on the individual’s needs, therapy may involve elements of skill development, emotional release, acceptance, gaining clarity and understanding, forgiveness, developing a healthier perception of self and others, and identifying resources.
