I believe that you are the expert of your life! My job is to be curious and to help you gain more understanding of yourself. A good therapist doesn't claim to have all the answers for why you are the way you are although I may have some ideas that I will share. When it comes to getting answers & more understanding, we will form hypotheses together and you will come to your own conclusions. I facilitate and guide that process! I'm here to share my knowledge to help you make decisions that are authentic, rational, and well-explored.
