I see psychotherapy as a relationship between myself and you, a person seeking my assistance and support. You come to me with your unique life challenges, and it is my responsibility to be openminded and flexible to your needs and desires. You own your health and well-being, and the direction of your therapy, and I am the “midwife”, helping you deliver the new and improved You.”
