Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Whether you need help coping with loss, transitions, or relationships; seek greater self-understanding and personal growth; feel "stuck;" or want relief from anxiety or depression, therapy can help. I believe we hold the answers we seek within ourselves but may have difficulty finding them on our own. I serve as a supportive guide who leads each client through a process of self-discovery. I provide a non-judgmental and safe environment in which to address problems and challenges. I see therapy as a collaborative effort and use an approach that draws upon different theories and practices based on a client's needs and circumstances. My work has been with clients of different ages, diverse backgrounds, and with a wide range of issues. I have specific training (EMDR) and experience helping clients work through trauma. I also have over 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their parents, and educating about positive parenting skills. I strongly believe that one of the most significant parts of successful therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I want you to feel comfortable with me as your therapist and confident that I can provide you with the type of services you need. Let's find out if we're the right fit!
