What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?
It is important for my clients to feel heard and understood.
Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?
I believe my client is the expert. My role is like a hiking stick to provide support in times of need and to learn to appreciate all the ups and downs through the journey.
What drives your passion for seeing clients?
It brings me tremendous joy to watch my clients grow and succeed.
How do you believe clients "get better"?
I believe clients "get better" by having more insights about themselves and the situations they are in, and by giving themselves time to heal.
