My top priority is to make our therapeutic relationship client-centered and collaborative, which means that we will work together to determine what change, growth, and healing would be most personally meaningful to you. As you share about yourself, over time we will gain an ever-expanding understanding of the dynamics leading to the unhelpful thinking, unhealthy actions, or overwhelming feelings getting in your way. By looking inward, we can identify and gain awareness of these patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting that you have come by honestly, but are no longer serving you. This understanding and building awareness allows for the possibility of change - for you to effect change in your life and make progress towards your goals.
