Message to clients

In my work, I've found that people are most open to exploration and change when they have a partner they trust in that process. I give my clients tools to look at their experiences and emotions in the spirit of inquiry, and move past fear and avoidance. When a client brings me their story, we work together to understand it, through trust, humor, creativity, and perseverance. I respect each client's strengths, and believe they can harness their own potential to live a more aware and satisfying life.
