    Personal Statement

    “I am a person of eternal hope.  I believe we all have the strength and wisdom to overcome whatever life challenges we face.  I am passionate about helping clients discover the strength and wisdom that resides in them.  This is particularly important when working with young people who often come into therapy lacking self-worth and unable to recognize their true potential.”
