A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Therapy can help client's take that first step. My style is interactive and goal-oriented. I use evidence-based models to help client's explore and reach desired goals, overcome obstacles preventing growth and self-awareness, both necessary aspects to feeling better and improve well-being and quality-of-life. With the client, we explore the six dimensions of wellness, and examine relationships and behaviors to find an appropriate balance. We examine changing maladaptive negative behaviors, and replacing them with positive life-enriching behaviors.
