To achieve improved overall mental health and wellness, I offer clients a patient-centered partnership to support and empower them in making informed choices that will lead to meaningful change. As a psychotherapist, I evaluate clients’ identified concerns from a holistic and integrative mental health perspective in order to create goals and realistic plans to improve overall health, achieve success and fulfill dreams.
Every client is unique, and it is my job to assist you through a therapeutic process of transforming pain and other emotional distress into hope, strength, positive change, and achievement.
