Penny strives to provide a safe and supportive atmosphere to explore personal issues that are creating distress in your life. You will work directly with her from your first telephone contact. Her belief is that we all have challenges in life and sometimes those challenges overwhelm our natural coping abilities and require support beyond what friends and family can provide. Her approach to therapy is collaborative with the goal of helping you to identify your strengths, develop positive thought and behavior patterns, to help you openly and honestly express your thoughts and emotions, and to make positive changes toward achieving your goals.
