I believe there is an innate desire within every human to be seen and heard, and to receive value and significance. For so many, a message filled with lies was internalized, “Who cares what I think? My feelings aren't important.” My NUMBER ONE focus is to create an atmosphere where my clients feel at ease, and valued and given the freedom to tell their unique and personal story. The meaning of “Therapy” to me is this, “Therapy is the miracle of, “You tell” and “I listen”. Therapy is the wonder of being heard and understood.” The goal of therapy is for the "best you" to emerge as skills and strategies are learned and implemented.

The commonality these clients possess is the recognition/need to terminate their alcohol and/or drug consumption and address their mental health issues responsible for the distress they are currently experiencing. Honesty, open mindedness, and an unfettered willingness for inquiry are ideal client characteristics; these help develop the atmosphere of trust, so vital in the therapeutic relationship.
