What is your style/approach to therapy?

I listen to what's recurring for clients that are contributing to areas of their being stuck in internal and/or external patterns that have become maladaptive.

What does a first session with you look like?

Clients can expect to widen their sphere of choice to gain internal psychological and external behavioral flexibility.
