Message to clients

I have worked as a writer and an academic (in the field of communication studies), & highly value creativity and individuality. Productive therapy involves therapist and client working collaboratively, each using the other to deepen understanding. I love celebrating my clients' successes, small and large. I love it when a client makes a joke. I love watching clients grow more confident in their ability to understand themselves & enjoy their lives.
