I believe in a client focused delivery of therapy where the client is in control; they are the experts in their own lives. Everyone deserves to have a person who is empathetic, non-judgmental, and understanding of where they are in their lives. This therapeutic setting allows people to work at their pace through a strength-based approach to reach their goals and feel a higher satisfaction within themselves and their lives.
