Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in practice fourteen years providing therapy to individuals, as well as couples and groups. One principal goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can feel comfortable exploring personal issues; with the end result being a greater understanding of self – both internally and in relationship to others. I draw from many theoretical orientations, and most importantly emphasize emotional safety in my work. I remain very passionate about my occupation and hope that this is warmly conveyed to everyone I have the privilege to work with.
