My Approach to Therapy

Life can be difficult! However, the degree of difficulty is often impacted by decisions we make in response to situations we encounter. It is my goal to partner with clients and their families to learn, discuss, and apply helpful skills to reduce negative symptoms. Fostering these skills enables us to work together to focus on relationship dynamics in order to improve both decision making and overall quality of life, school, and home experiences. I firmly believe that each moment of our existence presents us with an opportunity for growth and change. By engaging in the therapeutic process, you have placed yourself or your loved one on the path of self-exploration which has the potential to lead you towards social health and mental wellness. Therapy works when you work it!
