Therapy Style

I am a holistic therapist who likes to focus on healing an individual from all aspects including mind-body wellness. I bring an eclectic skill set of many different therapeutic approaches and orientations so that I can use different techniques to find the best tools and interventions to help and support whoever I am working with. I pull from my wealth of knowledge, experience (both personal and professional), and training to generate growth and progress on goals.
