Maybe you know exactly what you want to change, and maybe you're still figuring that out, but something about your current experience needs to shift before you can move toward the life you want. As an integrative psychologist, I love helping people uncover what is most important to them, as well as what might be getting in the way, so that they can live with a greater sense of purpose and well-being.

My therapeutic viewpoint is that all clients can change if they have a supportive therapist in a therapeutic environment that is conducive to change. Additionally, they must have the desire to change, set goals, and work on the skills needed outside of the counseling session to create lasting change.
