My Approach to Therapy

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process. I always say to my clients that, “therapy is for you so get what you need out of it.” This means, let me know what you are liking and not liking out of our sessions as well as what you need more of and less of. This will help me better tailor therapy to you. The goal is for therapy to be used as a successful tool for you so that you can feel more comfortable in your everyday life. Therapy can be a great way to learn better skills that can help you manage your anxiety and stress, become in-tune with your most authentic self, and how to be loving and excepting who that person is.

My Education and Training
