I offer a kind and compassionate approach to therapy to help individuals be empowered and motivated to bring about positive change. I believe individuals have the ability to utilize their own strengths to overcome the challenges they are facing. The therapeutic relationship is a key factor in the success of therapy and I work to have a trusting relationship to create a safe place for the individual to discuss whatever their needs may be. Together we can work towards personal solutions to tackle the challenges you are facing.
