"I view problems as not within one person, but within the interactions between people and their environment. I work to help clients develop skills and insight to better manage their lives, while at the same time working to balance relationships. I value the insight and skill each client brings to therapy and work with clients' own strengths to help them reach their goals. Symptom relief is my initial focus with clients, but it is only a first step in the therapy process. Subsequently, my focus shifts toward working with clients to address the underlying problems in their lives."
