Greetings! In my work, my overall hope is to assist others to attain an inner peace and security in who they are as a person in all environments. In doing this, I believe each person is fully capable of making productive and responsible changes in their lives when they choose to do so. I hope that time for you is now. Because of my recognition that no two clients are alike, I strive to engage each individual in a manner that is unique to the client’s needs and strengths, thus creating a customized and comprehensive approach to each individuals needs.
