Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Would you like to have a therapist who understands you? When we encounter moments when our world seems to be splintering it is important to feel safe, understood and feeling okay to share the things that make us appear to be same as others; as well as the things we believe make us different – possibly unacceptable. Or maybe, the world isn’t splintering but life just seems like it should be more than what is being experienced! These are times when my skills can be helpful. I believe that each person is special and together we can discover and reinforce your strengths; moving you along the path to wholeness and well-being.
