"I believe in an accepting, non-judgmental approach to meet you where you are in your journey through life. My goal is to understand your situation from your point of view. Using personality traits of empathy, compassion, and commitment allow me to help you gain insight to have a better understanding of yourself. This, in turn, helps you to accept yourself for who you are while motivating you to create change. My approach goes beyond listening and understanding. I want to teach you skills that can help you manage and problem solve independently. Empowering you towards self-advocacy is my goal in therapy. "

"Everyone experiences problems from time to time. We usually resolve life's daily challenges but sometimes they threaten to overwhelm us. Unresolved issues can affect us at home and interfere at work. Ignoring these situations usually makes them worse. Trying to resolve them on your own may only yield limited success. Professional help usually increases the chances for a positive outcome. At such times when you need support, I am available to help."
