"I especially work well with people who want to make changes in their lives and how they feel about themselves. Often it seems "my best clients" are those who have already been in therapy and have a good cognitive understanding but who haven't made the emotional steps to forgiveness and loving themselves. I focus on your strengths, and finding solutions that work for you. The more you can learn about yourself and what "makes you tick", the better you will be able to choose a path that leads to fulfillment and joy."

Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.
