THERAPY

ABOUT

I aim to get a deep understanding of what your goals are and how you would like your life & relationship to be.  It is my goal to meet you with great respect, openness and transparency.  My therapy work is active and strength based and I closely track therapeutic progress.  To facilitate change I may ask you to try different things.
