Philosophy

I believe that therapy is a partnership between the client and therapist. Effective therapeutic relationships are built on on mutual respect and the client and therapist must both be open to learning from each other. Every client I have ever worked with has brought with them their own individual strengths and as I see it, it is my job to help identify and build on those strengths
