Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I use a broad base of theoretical knowledge and life experiences to establish rapport with my clients and to help them identify where they hope to grow. It’s important that a relationship is formed based on mutual respect and open dialogue. I’ve found that these help people feel comfortable sharing their deepest thoughts, feelings and struggles. I’ve found that making this emotional commitment helps people seek different and frequently more effective ways of coping with life’s challenges.
