In my work I draw upon a hope for mutuality, believing that all persons deserve it even when it becomes difficult. So, I value a collaborative, exploratory, and enlightening relationship for healing both in therapy and evaluation. Creativity, conversation, play, coaching, and reflection are all tailored pieces of my approach. I find these useful, even in surprising ways, when I am working with kids, teens, and adults.
