YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE NOT YOUR IDENTITY
When we meet I will make every effort to get to know all about you, not merely your symptoms. Remember, your symptoms are not your identity. Our treatment will focus on diminishing your symptoms but my goals in treatment are far greater than that. My goal is to enable you to discover and live a full life of meaning, purpose and happiness with fulfillment in all aspects of your life.
