"Striving to see the clients story through their eyes is paramount in my work.  Only then can I truly begin to understand their unique journey and embrace a client where they are.  There is power and growth when you feel like someone sees, understands, and accepts you at your core.  I view therapy as a collaborative journey, and I am always honored and humbled when a client chooses me to walk alongside them."
