Living each day with intention can energize and fulfill us while enhancing the lives of those around us. Intentional living begins with letting go of emotional pain. By examining our present life we can determine if the life we are living today is the life we want or is it one based on our old way of thinking and feeling. With the prescriptive eclectic approach to psychotherapy, the psychotherapist customizes treatment to the specific needs of individual patient. The end result of prescriptive matching is a more efficient, applicable, and efficacious therapy that meets the client's current needs.

My counseling philosophy is person centered, holistic and existential. I believe that - Life is a process of moving towards wholeness.... Our brokenness is the basic human dlemma and each person's story is unique... It is because of this uniqueness that we all encounter different paths.... Empowering clients and helping them to move forward involves many paths also - from cogntive, behavioral, solution focused, humanistic, psychodynamic to marriage & family therapy ... and all are essential in meeting the client "where they are" and helping them to move forward.
