"I treat psychological difficulties with a compassionate, yet results-oriented approach. When someone suffers from a medical disorder, a comprehensive assessment of the problem is required in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis. If the diagnosis is incorrect, treatment will repeatedly fail. As a diagnostician, my focus is to treat people, many of whom had been non-responsive to previous psychological / medical treatment, in this same way. Only with a correct diagnosis will treatment be effective. Once determined, goals discussed, a treatment plan in place, the therapy begins. With time and work, individuals grow to experience enhanced emotional health along with interpersonal and professional contentment."

"When working with my clients, I choose to use an approach that is respectful, non-blaming, and collaborative. We all have stories about our lives, relationships, desires, beliefs, and strugles. Often times the problem latches onto these stories and creates negative effects in the past, present, and future. By gaining some distance from the problem, we can begin to explore, create, heal and discover unique outcomes. I aim to empower my clients by positioning them as the expert in their own lives. You are not the problem, the problem is the problem! "
