I see clients with many different life struggles from trauma to depression and anxiety or short/long term relationship issues. Therapy is not a one size fits all, so my approach to therapy comes mostly from relationship building and allowing my clients to feel comfortable to open up about their innermost fears, so we can work on different ways to resolve them.

I use solution focus and various modalities in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore your reasons for being in therapy, go over the intake and decide the most appropriate ways to assist you in your progress.
