Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that makes the difference - Winston Churchill This quote captures the life lessons I learned in my professional and student experiences that I also saw reflected in the stories of my clients. The most resilient and successful people are such, not because of noted accomplishments, but because they choose to continue forward, one step at a time, on this amazing journey of life.
I approach treatment with you as I would want someone else to approach me: with kindness, compassion, and skill. We will work in collaboration in a nonjudgmental and positive environment.
During our first session together, we will explore your personal history, treatment goals, and immediate concerns. You will leave knowing where we will be heading and armed with some coping strategies to start your healing process right away.
