"The heart of my work is compassion and curiosity. It is my goal to instill these into my clients. I believe each person is innately health seeking. Each of us can find our way off this healthy path for very important and powerful reasons. We work together to understand these reasons with deep compassion. With curiosity we look to discover ways to get back on the path to the healthiest self. I discovered over the past decade that compassion allows us to move on and that with curiosity new choices emerge which can allow for deep, profound and lasting change."

While many clinicians have similar skills to address your concerns, it's actually their personality, life experience, and ability to relate to YOU that determines the success of your therapy.

The truth is, we all have things that get in the way of our happiness: past traumas that need to be healed, ways of thinking and being in the world that no longer serve us.
