Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My approach is client-centered, collaborative, strength-based and at the same time I can be directive and gently challenging when needed. I support clients to shift thought patterns and behaviors that don't serve them. At the same time, I teach compassion and understanding for the ways that even the most unhealthy patterns are aiming to meet needs or create safety. I see my role as that of teacher, guide, mentor, coach, collaborator, witness, empath mirror. I am honored to be of assistance in such precious and powerful journeys to self.
