What I enjoy about being a therapist:

I love helping people to figure out patterns in their thoughts and feelings.  As we progress through this discovery we both change, and we both learn new things about the world.

Why you should choose to work with me:

I make every effort to understand how you view the world, and what you need to change. I am gentle in my approach, but when it is appropriate to challenge you, I will do so.
