Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The core of my work is helping people stop "the war within." Helping people develop greater compassion for themselves and acceptance for themselves. My approach is eclectic; my aim is to get the results that the client seeks. I'm interested in therapy being a transformative experience for the client. Together, my client and I form a supportive relationship in order to foster the changes in the client's life that he or she desires.
