Get to Know:

I have an unassuming personality and at first can present as reserved, but in fact I have warm sense of humor and in my many years of practice I’ve found that I make deep and lasting therapeutic connections with my clients. My therapeutic philosophy is that the therapy session belongs to my clients and that it’s my job to help them explore and resolve private issues in a safe and supportive environment. I also believe that people who think that therapy might be for them should initially attend three sessions because the thought of therapy can be intimidating, and it takes more than one session to decide if it is right for them.
