My Approach

My approach to all that I do relies on my ability to develop a warm, trusting, and meaningful relationship with each person that I meet. Through this relationship and our work together, it is my hope that you will feel comfortable to explore more about your self in a safe and secure manner.


Our work together will involve learning more about you and your self, along with your history and past experiences. This will help us understand why you make certain choices and respond to situations in certain ways. Once we understand this better, we can look at these patterns to decide if they continue to meet your needs or if they need to be modified.


The goal of our work together is for you to gain a greater understanding about your self so that you can make choices and respond from a place that feels grounded and secure. This in turn, will lead to living a happier, more satisfying, and more enriching life.
