Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy working with a diverse clientele with diverse issues, from the stress of work and home to the stress of positive life changes. Often, learning to understand each other's operating systems -- you're an Apple and they're a PC or Android -- helps improve situations immensely! So, whether you are seeking short-term, solution-focused counseling or a deeper focus on issues of long-term, please feel free to call or email me to chat to see if we are a fit. If not, perhaps I can recommend another therapist better suited to your needs.
