“I consider it a privilege when my clients and students let me into their lives. I find no greater reward than seeing them get better.”

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million…

Finding the right therapist can sometimes be like trying on a glove. Sometimes it just isn’t the right fit. Short of meeting in person, video may be the next best way to get a quick sense of someone’s personality.
