Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my practice I help individuals and couples navigate through the labyrinth of human relationships and life's transitions, be it marriage concerns, parenting, work/life balance, or stress management. The world is a very complex arena and many of us need a neutral figure to guide us through the hurdles. It is important to me that the therapeutic process proves to be useful rather than simply supportive and comforting. In that way it is critical to me that every sessions provides my clients with concrete tools and solutions they can then apply immediately.
