I believe that all of my clients can achieve positive results towards their personal long and short-range goals with regard to their work, family, finances, physical and mental health, friends and leisure by clarifying their values and attitudes. I tend to look for each individual's strengths and past successes in working with them to develop a holistic treatment plan. With my nursing background, I believe that I am especially able to help individuals understand and deal with their health-related concerns that impact their psychological well-being while working closely with their medical team.
