To ensure that my client receive best practice evidence-based therapy and a personalized experienced that matches her or his needs, I offer person centered services that are based on collaborative exploration of goals using an integration of therapeutic modalities. Life isn't always fair; sometimes a person can feel defeated. Healing doesn't always come easy and sometimes it is hard to reach out. With that said when we humans come together and feel supported, a tremendous transformation can begin. Healing can and does happen; hearts mend, souls calm, minds rest and individuals rejuvenate. In the mean time we manage with a little help.
