My goal is to help you develop coping skills in dealing with life's struggles, an understanding of your environment, and in becoming the person you envision yourself to be.

When I first met him I was very nervous but after speaking to him the first day I realized he was very understanding and kind. Even made me laugh. I look forward to talking to him every week.
