"If you are ready to make changes in your life, there is help. I enjoy working with motivated clients towards healing and wholeness. I believe that therapy is very much a "team" effort, requiring input from client and clinician alike. I also believe that removing the "smoke and mirrors" from therapy is especially helpful and I work to make the process as transparent as possible. Therapy is an incredible, life-changing process and it requires participation. It is likely that you already possess your own answers. Let's find them together."
