I attempt to create a safe place in which clients feel free to express their unique life experiences in order to more fully understand the obstacles that inhibit their growth. In a supportive therapeutic relationship, it is possible to emotionally metabolize life's challenging events to begin to really know and trust oneself in order to create meaningful change."
