I encourage growth in my clients by helping to increase their awareness of how behaviors and thought patterns affect their identity, relationships, and overall sense of well being. I view the therapeutic process as one of compassionate collaboration in which clients can gain new insights, build inner strength, and create desired life changes. Together, we work to identify and understand which aspects of our existence are beyond our control. Once that foundation is established, we can move toward a peaceful and profound state of acceptance. Clients are empowered to take ownership of their lives, realizing that they are truly free to change and, ultimately, to embrace more opportunities to experience joy and fulfillment.
