Since as early as I can remember I felt a strong empathic connection to others and was always interested in Psychology and understanding others. I believe that this is the work that I was meant to do in the world. I believe that a trusting therapeutic relationship can be powerful and healing.
I have built a successful practice being nurturing yet direct, gentle and honest with my clients about my observations. I focus on trust, helping clients to tap into their "gut" and focusing on solutions.
My style is to listen to my clients yet I am not a therapist that will just nod my head. I will talk with you and provide insight based on what you have shared with me.
