Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I don't believe in "one size fits all" with regard to psychotherapy. I make use of several treatment modalities and use them appropriate to the individual client. I believe in giving my clients "homework" between sessions when necessary to facilitate positive change in their lives. I believe that all clients have the ability within themselves to effect change and that my role as a therapist is to assist them in this process.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

If you are thinking about therapy, let me first commend you. I know it can be hard to think about sharing your problems with someone else. But something I have learned by working in this field and from my life is that problems are to be shared. We are all in this together. I try to take a balanced approach in therapy between acceptance and change.
