Maya Angelou once said, “ My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. “ I try to embody this beautiful quote in how I counsel my clients. I believe that the keys to our healing are within us and that with support, compassion, respect, and sensitivity we can overcome those real and perceived barriers keeping us stuck. I utilize an integrative style that includes theoretical practices such as; Systemic, Narrative and others, I try to meet my clients where they are and utilize the methodology that most speaks to their needs.
You have taken the first and most courageous steps towards being healthier and happier by realizing that you need a change and support in making those changes. Arthur Ashe stated it best when he said, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
I am happy to be a part of your journey and a resource to support you. I look forward to working with you!
