Message to clients

I believe that all of us can help ourselves once we have the tools and resources to do so. Through practice, commitment, and support, anyone can work through life stressors and transitions. Sometimes we need extra encouragement, and sometimes we need to learn those self-help skills in order to be able to help ourselves through a tough time. I believe in your inner strength and resilience and see my role as teacher/coach and sometimes cheerleader. I aim to help you discover how you want your life to be and then to help you figure out how to get there.
