"I balance compassion with directness in my work, thereby helping my clients to lead more satisfying lives. My active, caring and collaborative approach to psychotherapy empowers others to make positive changes in their lives and relationships. I approach each client as a unique individual; my objective is to see your world as you do. I do not believe in a "one treatment fits all" approach and thus seek to discover what will work specifically with you. I am committed to helping my clients lead fuller and more balanced lives and integrate concepts of mindfulness, forgiveness and acceptance into my therapy." - Kathy Hickey, R.N. Psy.D.
