Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that each of us holds the resources to solve our problems, but often we have trouble reaching them or seeing beyond the struggles of the moment. I use a compassionate strength based approach to help you access your inner resources, learn new skills to manage stressful situations and reconnect with both your best self and those whom you love. My approach to therapy involves your whole self - body, mind and spirit - and uses recent developments in neuroplasticity to help you accomplish the change you seek.
