Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I utilize strength-based treatment, such as building one’s “toolbox” or set of coping, assertiveness, and communication skills, and incorporate outside supports to enhance the therapeutic process. I work with children, teens, families and individuals and utilize a solution-focused perspective. I incorporate enjoyable activities in session to use at home to help with the healing and self-care process.
