“I seek to build a trusting and confidential relationship in which you can sort out goals and find new creative solutions to life’s challenges. Together, we will work to uncover patterns that interfere with healthy relationships and personal satisfaction. In a wellness-oriented approach to therapy, I encourage positive life-style changes that assist in improving your emotional, physical and spiritual well-being."
