Message to clients

I believe that effective treatment happens in the context of a strong therapeutic relationship. My initial goal is to build that kind of relationship with you so that you feel safe, respected and supported. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative effort in which we work together to understand your strengths and struggles in order to foster transformation and healing.

I look forward to partnering with you on your journey to better mental health.
