With the use of active listening, mindfulness techniques and cognitive-behavioral therapy, I aim to assist people in understanding themselves so that they may reach a healthy and more desirable outcome. Change is important. However, personal change may prove to be quite challenging at times. I believe that working collaboratively in a safe and non-judgmental environment is essential in personal growth.
