My Therapy Style

My approach prioritizes mutual respect, empathy, and partnership with my clients. I work alongside each individual, honoring their unique experiences, perspectives, and strengths. Together, we explore negative challenges, identify goals, and develop effective strategies for growth. Clients are met with compassion and provided a safe, non-judgmental environment where they can freely explore their emotions and experiences. This space fosters a sense of understanding, acceptance, and empowerment. Clients often gain insight, resilience, and practical tools necessary to navigate life's complexities with confidence and authenticity.

Do you have any pets?

I have a beautiful long haired German Shepherd. She is the best greeter. When a guest arrives she does an excited "dance" to greet guests, only to nonchalantly retire to her spot after a brief burst of enthusiasm. It's as if she's saying, "Welcome! Let me show you my joyful side…okay, nap time now the fun's over."
