"In my practice I take a collaborative approach with adult clients. Together we seek balance, change and acceptance. These factors contribute to achievement of pleasure and fulfillment in life and relationships. My strength is that I incorporate the theory of cognitive therapy with the concept that past experiences and interactions have an influence on current beliefs and behavioral patterns. Through this approach, I am able to come to a more complete conceptualization and establish trust and rapport with my clients which enables them to engage in the therapeutic process more fully. "
