Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My approach is grounded in helping clients develop a clear understanding of their issues that prevent them from finding resolution and healing. My sessions provide depth and insight which impacts a person’s emotional well being and improves their relationships with people.

As a therapist, I will teach you how to identify thoughts, feelings and behaviors that keep you stuck and unfulfilled. Through our work together, you will learn effective ways to handle problems instead of engaging in counter-productive behaviors and negative patters.

Learning how to cope with your feelings instead of turning to self destructive behaviors and addictions is a large focus of our work. If you’re struggling with low self esteem, relationship conflicts, an eating disorder and/or depression, don’t hesitate to call me.
