As a systemically trained therapist, I help my clients understand their various roles. I draw their attention to behaviors and communication patterns that serve them well and help them identify ways to be more adaptive. Together, we unravel and identify both their issues and goals and create opportunities for healing and growth. Throughout the process, I provide insight and guidance to assist my clients in making constructive choices. My style is supportive while also promoting independence and autonomy. I truly admire my clients for doing this work. It is a process that takes great courage, strength, and commitment.
