"I believe that healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest caring without judgement, and I work hard to cooperatively assist my patients in clarifying their goals for treatment. Rather than adopting one methodology for each individual and issue, I draw from a variety of methods to create a tailored approach for each individual and circumstance. As a therapist I am warm, open, encouraging, and direct. I consider myself an active therapist, combining experience, education, creativity, and a sense of humor with a down-to-earth, realistic approach to counseling."
