George believes that when therapy is conducted in a safe and warm environment, and a client feels heard and understood without judgment, it can be an incredibly powerful tool in providing healing and growth for life's difficulties and challenges.

As a strengths-based and client-centered Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, George seeks to identify a client's existing internal strengths and resiliency, then work with them to create goals that combine their existing resiliency with the goal of achieving healing and growth and positive change.
