Some people seek psychotherapy because they are experiencing emotional pain or other difficulties in their lives and need assistance to gain relief. Others engage in the process   because they want to get to new level in their development. Because everyone is different, I tailor  the treatment to meet the needs of each individual. 

I view psychological work as one of the greatest of adventures because it can transform a person in important ways that other experiences often cannot.
