About

My clinical philosophy is one of a humanistic nature, with emphasis on the therapeutic relationship as the most essential building block of the counseling process. My therapeutic style is warm, interactive, attentive and compassionate. My care philosophy is not to diagnose, label or categorize but rather, to treat the whole person as an individual who is separate from their problems. I take a holistic approach to health and wellness, with emphasis on achieving balance in major life domains, and I operate with the highest degree of ethical standards of care. My ideal client is someone who believes in growth.
I believe that compassion is foundational to the helping process. As needed, I am also direct and structured in my approach and have the ability to tailor and pace treatment to your individual and unique needs. I am highly sensitive to evolving the process at your pace and convenience while still promoting and prompting advancement toward your goals.
There is no winning or losing here. There is only winning or learning. I am here to support and help guide you on a trajectory that aligns with how you want to live. There is no one way to live, and I aspire to join you where you are at, and journey with you where you want to go. Meet me in this safe space and let's effect desired change together.
