Message to clients

I want my clients to feel they can share their feelings, wants and needs and conflicts during sessions, without judgement. Working with my clients to help them work through strong emotions, cope with grief, stress, anxiety are very important to me.

I see my role not as a fixer, but instead someone who will listen and work on learning new skills in communication, coping skills, parenting skills, and who to compromise and work through problems in their family, at work and in their community.

I believe each client is unique and an important person, no matter what their issues are. I have working with clients with very sensitive problems, and are holding in years of emotional pain, often times feeling that they are not "good enough".

I want to get to know my clients as human beings not a broken person, to give them help and hope for a better life.
