What you can expect from our first session

Clients can expect an interactive, solution-focused therapist that looks at an individual, along with what is happening systemically. Clients can expect supportive and practical feedback to assist in effectively addressing personal life challenges. Clients can expect integrative methodologies and techniques offered in a distinctly personalized approach. I build on existing strengths to facilitate learning how commitment to growth takes shape unique to each of us.
