I understand and respect the courage it takes to talk with someone about personal and sometimes uncomfortable topics. It is my goal to assist a client in achieving overall wellness, which I believe is key to long term happiness. If you are motivated for change in your life but not sure how to achieve that change, I would love to assist you on that journey to positive change.  I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is primary to change and see myself as your partner in the process.
