"Beyond knowing a therapist has degrees and a license such credentials do not matter much in choosing. Therapy is more art (or dance) than science. Nor may you be impressed with a long series of professional accomplishments. What you want to know is: Can I stop the pain? Can I make your depression and anxiety go away? Can I fix your career or relationship problem? The answer is: No, I cannot. But together we can. If you will bring the motivation and some willingness to trust I will bring knowledge and the ability to shift things. And perhaps, with the help of an unseen grace, together we can heal the hurt and find a solution."

Supporting brain chemistry while doing therapy makes therapy a solution rather than a band-aid. I use an integrative approach with clients rather than a tunnel-vision approach.
