About

My philosophy for therapy, is to value and create meaningful and empathic relationships that work to maximize a client's potential and wellbeing. Having worked with clients and families possessing a variety of cultural values, biases, and worldviews, I has developed highly effective interpersonal and intercultural communication skills. Exploring the family system is at the forefront of my therapeutic philosophy. With this philosophy comes an unbreakable dedication to the service of others and a wealth of experience in counseling for families, couples, adults, adolescents, and individuals in crisis.
