How do you try to make a difference in the lives of your patients?
While my title is a therapist, I think of myself more as a coach. All of my clients experience genuine engagement tailored to fit their individual needs. I don't assume that I have all the answers to what their path looks like, but I'm committed to taking the journey with each client. I know that their experiences are unique and their path needs to be too. I focus on how to use their strengths to empower them. I am genuinely curious of their interests, strengths, passion, motives, and desires.
