Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My work is rooted in deep respect for the dignity of each being. There is an inter-relationship between the body, mind and spirit and I trust the power of each person to heal.

Although we don’t choose the trauma’s that are brought our way, we do get to choose how to cope with them in a healthy, healing way. Together, we will explore those choices and find resources that strengthen you and help you to have a more enriched life.

Using an eclectic approach, with an emphasis on cognitive-behavioral, I consider each individual’s unique background, current situation, needs and values. I am “straight forward” and will work collaboratively with you to meet your needs and goals. I believe that a multi-dimensional, team approach is important. I refer to other professionals for a variety of issues to support you on your healing journey.

It is your right to find peace.
