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


That anyone who steps into my office would know and experience that I am with them and for them


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


That your growth and healing would in turn help and serve others;

that your new "home" would welcome others who may need a place to go


Experiencing genuine transformation and 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

Come on in- how can I help?
