I am a compassionate, direct and interactive therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address their treatment goals.  I offer a highly personalized approach, tailored to each client's specific and unique needs. I work with each individual to help them identify and build upon their strengths.  I believe that the person is not the problem, the problem is the problem.  I collaborate with my client's and help them step away from problem saturated and oppressive stories, to discovering and/or creating new untold stories which include preferred accounts of their lives, hopes, values, dreams and relationships.
