Message to clients

Beginning therapy can be scary, exciting, uncomfortable, and even painful. Every person comes to therapy in a different way for a unique reason. My goal is to tailor fit the therapy experience to you. My entire mission is to support you in reaching goals you set for yourself in whatever way fits you best. I approach this by getting to know you, working with you to develop your own goals and strengths, as well as offering suggestions on skill building and other techniques. I see you as the expert in your own life and endeavor to support you in becoming who you would like to be. I work primarily with teens and young adults, and put a high priority on developing a strong therapy relationship with each of my clients. Let me know what you're facing, I'm ready to partner with you.
