I am devoted to every client's sense of safety and trust in our relationship, where they can experience genuineness, hope and empowerment for change, healing and renewal. I draw from various approaches to therapy, based upon what is optimal for each client's goals. I see tremendous potential in each of my client's and count it a sincere privilege to come alongside them in their life journey.
