Therapeutic Approach

“The many years of experience I have providing psychotherapy have taught me that each person and their situation is unique. There is no “one size fits all” approach to happiness and mental health. I will tailor our conversations, and your treatment, to meet your unique and specific needs. We will focus on what you want to, in order to get you feeling better as quickly and sustainably as possible.”
