Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in the treatment of individual's and couples. If you feel you're at a crossroads in your life, or if you feel stuck I can try to help you move forward. I have extensive experience working with depression, anxiety, addiction and trauma. I believe that human beings have a tremendous capacity to heal and to be resilient. Coming to therapy can be a positive first step to getting help and to heal from the inside out. I follow a collaborative approach to therapy and draw upon many different interventions and techniques that specifically fit each client's treatment goals and problems. I believe that therapy should be about working together in a non-judgmental warm environment and this is the foundation that can evoke change within a person.
