My goal is for you to feel safe, respected and accepted as we explore your concerns in a gentle, non-judgemental way. The direction of therapy is determined by your goals. I do not believe that one therapy approach fits all so I draw creatively from a range of therapy modalities. The role of a good therapist is to get you to the point where you no longer need a good therapist.
