Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe in guiding my clients through the process of reaching new solutions to their problems, creating stronger and healthier relationships, and developing a stronger sense of self. I believe therapy is the process of self-discovery which leads to a change in self and in relationships.

Lastly, I believe there are unique challenges that individuals, couples and families in the gay and lesbian community experience. Whether the problem is unique to the gay and lesbian community or not, I come from a nonjudgmental and affirming framework. Even spiritually may be a source of internal conflict, and this would be a safe place to discuss this issue.
