Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is experienced in working with individuals, families, children and adolescents. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing therapeutic services to clients dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, teen issues, grief and loss as well as relationship struggles. I am passionate about what I do, and enjoy working particularly with young adults, pre-teen and teenage girls, offering a safe and supportive environment where strengths are discovered and tools are developed to help clients feel more empowered, self assured and confident. Therapy is not meant to last forever. My hope is that I am able to help teach my clients the coping strategies necessary so they feel competent and satisfied with their own lives. I strive to help my clients achieve the life and relationships they want through knowledge, insight, awareness, tools and healing. This will allow my clients to navigate future challenges on their own. Please visit my website: ajourneywithincounseling.com
