“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”Viktor E. Frankl
I believe that change and healing are possible and that optimal wellness can be achieved through reestablishing the connection between mind, body, and spirit. I view therapy as a collaborative journey, where together we can identify goals, work through current obstacles, and develop new skills that will help you in coping with life’s occasional challenges.The therapeutic relationship is a key component in the healing process; therefore, I place special emphasis on creating a safe, accepting, nonjudgmental space for my clients.
I view the client as the expert on their situation and view my role as a guide, encouraging and supporting my clients along their journey of self-improvement and healing, and identifying strengths and resources when they feel stuck or discouraged. Through an integrative and holistic approach, I work intentionally to tailor treatment to my clients and their unique needs.
