Message to clients

I am dedicated to meeting the emotional and psychological needs of my clients. My approach is to be caring and compassionate, while also trying to be direct in guiding clients through their process. I believe that counseling can help individuals and families move in new directions, fostering growth and a sense of well-being. I work with people from all walks of life. Change is possible; what we long for is not beyond reach.
My goal in working with clients is to help them gain the skills needed to cope effectively with life’s stressors, engage meaningfully with others, manage distressing feelings, regulate emotions, reduce impulsivity, increase self-confidence, communicate effectively, and to learn to express their needs successfully. I am a firm believer that we all want to do well.
