I believe in an integrative and collaborative approach to the therapeutic process. Therapy means something different to each person and therefore the process should be tailored to you and your needs. I approach my clients with a solution-focused framework and from a strengths perspective. My goal is to work with you to help reach your goals. All of us have the capacity for change and my goals are to work with you during that journey.
