Small Changes Make a Big Difference.
As the owner of Aspyre Wellness & a seasoned clinician of over 26 years, I know that everyone who passes through my door brings with them a unique set of needs and experiences. I let my clients set the pace of treatment and together, as a team, we determine what is needed to improve their quality of life. Whether our work can be accomplished in just a few sessions or something more long-term is needed, I am here to help clients navigate life’s challenges. My superpower is the ability to break down complexities into simple solutions, and my diagnostic skills are precise. I find success lies in building on already existing strengths and using them as a foundation. My clients describe me as direct and to the point, while still being validating and empathetic. This builds confidence and a belief that they can begin changing desired behaviors. I want every client to walk away from each session with practical knowledge they can begin applying that day.
