To seek your soul is a precious thing, but you will never find it on your own, only among the clamor, threat, and pain of other people's need will love be known. (from Soul Weavings: A Gathering of Women's Prayers, Kathy Galloway, Iona Community, Scotland)
I'm journeying with you side by side; The path is narrow as the world is wide. My clinical approach is to walk along side people in their journey toward relief from suffering, growth, and healing. I believe that every human has strengths to draw from, I and will do everything within my power and the ethical requirements of my profession to help you build on your strengths and use them to move forward in your life. I also believe that every human has weaknesses, and that it is the job to of every person to learn about, confront, and manage our personal flaws. I believe that Mental Health Symptoms come as a combination of our bio-social make-up and our history. It is in radical acceptance of both our strengths and flaws, along with an intention toward feeling better, healing, and growth that we begin on a path toward recovery. I am honored to have the opportunity to walk with my patients in both their pain and their growth.
