personal statement

I believe very deeply in the human capacity and our ability to transcend adversity.  When empowered our capacity for greatness is an unstoppable force! During our work together we will approach your life difficulties through a humanistic approach that integrates multiple counseling theories and modalities that are person centered and utilize your individual strengths to maximize your ability to garner the confidence to gain control over your motivations, behaviors, and the world around you. To be truly whole, we need balance in our personal lives and to exist within a place we can thrive. Without this, we find ourselves helpless and overwhelmed. Let me join you in emerging again, as the phoenix of your very own life and more amazing than before!
