My Approach to Therapy
I believe that everyone is doing their best and they can benefit from learning new skills to make their lives better and live according to their goals and values.
I believe that the complexity of people's lives requires requires an indivdualized treatment approach which highlights one's strengths and can empower you to take effective action.
I believe that listening is not the same as being heard and I strive to offer a safe, empathetic, supportive, non judgemental environment where we can work collaboratively toward your defined goals.
