Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Practice Description: For over 20 years, I have counseled children, teens, families and adults. I have assisted children in private and public schools, facilitated children's art and parenting groups, and have helped individual children and adults in private practice for the last 13 years. I am comfortable working with clients from a variety of backgrounds. My style is interactional, warm, experiential and instructive. My therapy is aimed at helping clients gain insight and awareness. I offer clients the knowledge, tools and skills needed to heal, grow and create changes in their relationships and their lives. Clients feel heard and understood and enjoy the therapeutic process. Clients are given the hope they need to create the changes they are seeking.
