My path to becoming a therapist was more of happenstance. I believed I would entered the US military, complete 20 years and retire. Life had other plans. The journey's through my career and life led to me to realize that numerous others came to me to seek advice and once my grandmother was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and I became her caretaker it increase my passion to help others.
I believe it is important to know that I pride myself on integrity, hard work, ethics and uphold confidentiality to the highest standards. I focus on each of my clients and want to see each one reach their full and maximum potential.
I view one of the key components of the therapeutic relationships as building rapport and establishing a thrusting open therapist/client relationship.
