Life is a journey that is individualized but does not have to be walked alone. There are challenges that we face on our path that can be overwhelming. At various moments of our life we just need that helping hand to guide, redirect, motivate, listen, or enlighten a perspective for change so we may overcome a situation. Life is unpredictable and seldom goes as planned. With change, comes new decisions and then follows the need for purposeful action. I utilize various modalities and treatment approaches that is a "best fit" for my client's individualized journey in life.
