Message to clients

Clients seeking to work with me can expect that we will work on identifying patterns of behaviors that may be causing them harm at this time. In addition we will focus on identifying alternative coping skills, and challenging current thought patterns. I'm here to support, validate, and challenge you in a safe space.

We will work together to establish realistic and attainable goals for you to achieve. These goals are flexible and we may modify them throughout the therapy process as your needs change. Active participation in and out of session is essential to your success. I may assign tasks between appointments to help strengthen the skills you acquire during therapy and empower you to resolve issues after the therapeutic relationship has ended.
