Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I provide an attuned, empathic presence with a time focused treatment model where the client and therapist actively engage in therapy. An eclectic mix of brief and solution focused work, history gathering to highlight relevant issues impacting current life interactions focusing on strengths and creativity reflects my style of therapy. I strive to help individuals and couples to resolve problematic patterns which interfere with the harmony and balance in their lives.
