Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My intention is to help clients have healthy, fulfilling relationships with themselves and the people in their lives. I work to gain your trust and be your ally as you take on the challenges life places before you, including difficult transitions due to age. Paramount to this therapeutic collaboration is empathy for your feelings and compassion for your unique life experiences. Our work together will be filled with respect, gentleness and consideration as you search for the meaningful, integrated life you deserve. It's your process, whether you're struggling to find your way back to the life you enjoy, or discovering a life you want to live, and the best quality of life you can experience.
