I like to understand your internal make-up and the dynamics of your interpersonal relationships. I also want to understand with you how it all fits together so that you can better evaluate which habits from back then you wish to keep and which ones you would like to replace with alternatives that better serve you in the here and now of your present life.
I believe that the “serenity prayer” offers us a lot of wisdom—only try to change what we can change and learn how to know the difference.

I believe that relationships to yourself and others are critically important. Because of that, I pay particular attention to supporting you in creating the kind of relationships you want.
I want to create a therapeutic relationship with you that will provide you with an environment that makes you feel safe, understood, and taken care of.
It is my hope to facilitate your taking the risk to reveal and express yourself so that you can deepen your self-understanding. This, I believe, will support your making good decisions about your life thus increasing the probability of reaching your life goals.
