"Working with people as partners in solving difficulties is paramount to successful change. Reaching out to others I know can be hard, but when we want real, lasting changes in our lives, it is never easy. Over the years I have worked with adults, teens, children and families in exploring what are the roots to problems and how we can move on to lead happier lives with a greater sense of clarity and freedom. Nurturing our strengths can overcome difficulties such as adjustment to life changes, loss, trauma, depression, anxiety, and relationship problems, including parent-child disconnects as early as birth."

Education and experience are also factors in the decision. However, when it comes right down to it, it's about connecting. All the great tools that a therapist may have will do no good if you do not connect with them.
