It is good to meet you!
My approach varies from person to person depending on the client and desired goals. I work collaboratively with clients to choose their own individual paths to relief and the restoration of hope. I consider working with and helping others through difficult times in their lives both an honor and a privilege. All clients are unique and respected for their individual challenges and needs.
