"Oftentimes, people come to therapy because they feel stuck in patterns that they can't shake, despite their best efforts--this may be creating symptoms of anxiety, depression, or relationship issues. I provide a safe, focused environment that allows my clients to explore themselves, their relationships, and their experiences in the world. I also offer special sensitivity to how cultural, racial, and societal issues affect an individual's life. The process is aimed at allowing people to clarify their own goals and move toward them, and to discover new ways of approaching life's challenges while becoming more aware of their personal values and needs."
