What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

At the beginning of therapy, clients will be able to prioritize needs by answering specific questions that will guide our work together. Along with goal setting, a quality of life assessment will be reviewed throughout therapy to gauge progress and overall success.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

When working with me it is important to know that I am approachable, genuine, and caring. I hold each client responsible for his/her success. Also, setting goals will be an important part of our work together.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have a blended/eclectic style that includes building trust, goal setting, and several therapeutic techniques. I counsel creatively and each client experience is unique.
