Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My path to becoming a therapist took some time and saw some lengthy tangents. Along the way I've been a teacher, counselor, wife, mother, and grandmother, all experiences that have shaped my outlook on life and my current work.Each client who comes into my office can expect to be treated with compassion, understanding, and respect. From your first contact with me, I will be determined to help you find the services you need and the help you seek. I don't "fix" anyone. My job is to facilitate my client's healing with the understanding that they can solve their own problems and discover their own life purpose. I will strive to ensure you feel supported, heard, and understood, learn efective coping skills, and begin letting go of behavious that aren't serving you so you can move forward in life with confidence that you are on the right path for you!
