“I believe life is a journey. Along the way, we are all thrown some really amazing things and some really hard and painful things. How we deal and cope with these is what can make the journey a positive challenge. My ultimate goal in providing therapy to clients is to assist them in their ability to cope and deal with what life throws them, the easy and the challenging.”
