Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has fifteen years of experience providing psychotherapy to adults, adolescents, couples and families. I work from a position of empowering each client and together we explore ways to living a happier and more fulfilled life. Each person's story is unique and respected as the therapeutic self-discovery process unfolds. My approach is integrative and tailored to the needs of the client whether it is short term work to address a problem that interferes with their current functioning or more long term work to help them gain insight into their life long patterns and relationship issues. I provide a nonjudgmental and supportive environment to all my clients in order for them to reach their treatment goals.
