“Psychological counseling provides individuals an opportunity to focus upon aspects of their lives where they feel ‘stuck’ or dissatisfied and to find ways to   improve the quality of their lives. My goal is to help my clients open themselves up to the possibilities that exist for them and to find the courage within themselves to pursue what they want and need. I have a particular passion for helping people to improve their relationships with others and also with themselves.”
