Message to clients

First and foremost, I make it a priority to create a space where you can feel comfortable expressing your humanity. I don’t believe it is my job to “fix” you, rather I will work with you to feel confident enough to take responsibility for the challenges and difficulties in your life. I won’t convince you what you should do, rather, I will work alongside you to help you discover what it is you really want to do. There is no magic button that I own to rid you of your challenges, however, I will work with you to discover new ways of relating to the challenges in your life. My hope is that after we meet, you will leave my office with a bit more hope for your future as well as feeling empowered to be able to face whatever it is that you are facing in your life.
