Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
With years of experience working with individuals and couples, I provide a caring and nonjudgmental environment that allows clients to comfortably work through their goals and problems. Using a cognitive behavioral approach, as well as childhood work where appropriate, I guide clients through their process of self-discovery, healing, goal setting, and making changes. I emphasize encouraging each person to build a solid sense of self and a sustaining self-esteem, especially in these complex and difficult times. The goal is to achieve calm in daily life, more fulfilling interpersonal relationships, and greater job satisfaction. If you have any questions I would welcome your phone call.
