As a therapist, I believe in people and I believe in the power and ability to change. I know how hard it is to admit and/or ask for help, I want to support you and make sure you know that I am right there with you and will be there through the good, the bad, and the really ugly stuff.  Conversely, I don't believe in telling clients what to do or not to do. A therapist should never ever do that. I want to help you make the best decision or choice by asking questions, identifying your goals, and acceptance of what you have decided. I believe that my job as a therapist is to help you to make a decision as opposed to me telling you what you need to do.


Therapy with me is done amazingly and skillfully. I never put my expectations on someone and I don't ever have any preconceived notions about someone. I try to meet you where you are at in that moment and I support you. I will encourage you. I will validate you. I will definitely help and I will sometimes call you on your crap because sometimes we all need to be called on our crap. But I think the biggest thing is I just want you to feel that after you leave you're in a better head space and that you felt that you were heard and that someone understands you.
