"One of the core things that’s important to me is the relationship between the person sitting in front of me and myself. What I really seek to do is understand what’s important to an individual, whether that’s doing well in school, or relationships with friends, family, and significant others, and help the person to identify what’s getting in the way and how they can be more engaged and live a vital and meaningful life. And so, whether that’s depression, anxiety, past incidents, we can talk and learn how to relate to those memories, thoughts, and emotions differently. And that way the person can be more engaged in their life, more engaged and less stuck."
