What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?
It is important for me that my client feels safe and happy when they are with me. I think that this only enhances the productiveness of each session as time goes on.
Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?
I see myself as the constant guiding presence for the client, steering them in the right direction and consistently following through.
What drives your passion for seeing clients?
The experience of seeing the progression within my clients on a day to day basis drives my passion.
How do you believe clients "get better"?
I believe that the two most important things that help the clients get better is being consistent and following through. At times it may be difficult, but knowing that the therapy will ultimately benefit them keeps me focused.

"In my early professional years I was asking the question, How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?" - Carl Rogers
