Tell us a little bit about your approach to counseling:

I believe that we are all relational by nature and developing a therapeutic relationship based on trust, respect, and mutual regard is essential. Individuals come to counseling for a variety of reasons and I partner with my clients as we assess treatment goals and direction. Because every individual is different, I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches and strategies based on the situation and client needs.
