These are the values that guide all aspects of my practice and my roles as therapist and supervisor.


Taking the mystery out of therapy so that what you experience is something genuine and relevant



 Providing the best standard of care and treating this process with the utmost respect



An open invitation to be real and to share as much or as little as you would like;

to know that when you arrive, the time and space is prepared for you



Experiencing healing because of what you invest in this process; 

that relationships would be rebuilt and hope would be renewed



Finding that the growth you experience in our work together begins to spread and affect all areas of life
