I strive to offer comprehensive client-centered counseling services utilizing a strengths-based focus tailored to each individual’s specific needs. The most meaningful aspect of psychotherapy is developing a strong therapeutic alliance with each client while working to promote healthy changes in thinking and living empowering clients to achieve their goals.
