My Approach to Helping

My style is interactive and goal-driven. Clients describe me as professional, personable, engaging, humorous and helpful. Most are able to quickly feel at ease around me and trust my expertise. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where people can confront deeply personal matters even if those matters are difficult to talk about. Sometimes I am the first person my client has risked talking to about an issue; other times a client may have talked to many people but needs expert guidance to determine what to do.
