I view therapy as a collaborative relationship with the common goal of developing healthy thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I focus on the present in an open, nonjudgmental atmosphere. …”helping people meet the unique challenges in their lives through the development of life skills.” These life skills will assist them in effectively meeting current and future challenges as well.
